Mazaj Alani by Charbel Rouhana

Mazaj Alani is about faces, places, dates and incidents, some of which have changed or ceased to exist, and only pure music has survived, music that transcends times and places.
Mazaj Alani is all the contradictions and moods inside of me that I unveil so we share them together…

Special thanks to everyone who has contributed with “his/her heart” to unveil this mood.
