Nassim by Charlie Mariano

October 18, 2008

On this album Charlie Mariano sets out for a journey through the musical landscape of North Africa. Oud, percussion, and vocals from the Maghreb meet Mariano’s saxophone and Dave King’s electric bass. Throughout the record one feels mutual understanding — both sound-worlds are self-confident, yet curious and interested in the nature of the other. They talk, dance, question and embrace each other. A true dialogue of civilizations.
As much, the music inspired this inter-cultural typeface-design. Although both projects are from totally different fields, the fundamental principles and assumptions behind them are similar: mutual respect, understanding and generosity between the cultures.
