Mystic by Abed Azrié

October 16, 2008

Abed Azrié was born in Aleppo, Syria, at the meeting point of many musical traditions; between east and west, Aleppo is at the doorway to what was once Mesopotamia, one of the cradles of civilization. While travelling, Abed discovered Paris. He has been living there since 1967. Abed Azrié puts an avant-garde twist on his songs, and thus is able to revive such legends as the Epic of Gilgamesh, Sufi poetry, classic Arab poetry as well as Andalucian songs.

Mystic is an album devoted to the Sufis’ poetry written from the IXth century to the XIIIth century. The Sufis see God in everything. Abed Azrié and his orchestra (violin, oud, accordion and drums) bring their mysticism up to date.
