Nizar Rohana- SARD (Narration) (2008)


The album "Sard" (Narration) was released in May 2008. Here, Rohana maintains an idiomatic language for the ud, yet he achieves refreshing new expressions and rhythms through dialogues with double bass, qanun and percussion. The album includes five pieces composed by Nizar. They are Sard, Umm El Zeinat, Iraq, Ajam and Hijaz. In addition, there are two familiar tunes that were specially arranged for this recording: Sama’i Farahfaza by Jamil Al Tambouri (arranged by Khaled Jubran) and “Ya rayeh sawb bladi” by Ahmad Qaabour (arranged by Nizar Rohana).
