Tešmešto: Abun Samuel Issa and the Choir of Zahle

I recently came accross a beautifull album on the iTunes store called tesmesto. The execute producer is Abun Samuel Issa a Syriac Orthodox Priest-Monk. It also features the Choir of Zahle.

The album was released quite a few years ago (2011). But I just bumped into it now and it is absolutely beautiful. The style is neo-Traditional and features Middle Eastern Instruments such as the 'ud, the doumbek, Qanon and the violin. Every plucked string, every hit drum is perfectly timed.

The Album features the 8 tracks, each track corresponds to one of the scales of the Syriac Church (Ajam, Hijaz, Hozan, Husaini, Kato, Nahwan, Saba, Segah).

Here's a sneak peak:


Through the prayers of the Birth-Giver of God Maryam and Mor Ephrem. God Bless you all.
