Recorded in 1990, Barzakh was the ECM debut of Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem. Now re-released on 180g vinyl after many years’ absence in the LP format, it was an album that immediately captured the attention of press and public with its gracefulness and authority.

“Phenomenal...this is pure Arab music, without ‘world music’ frippery,” wrote Karl Lippegaus in Stereo. Brahem is joined here by Bechir Selmi, the sensitive violinist from the Musical Ensemble of Tunis, and percussionist Lassad Hosni, whose earthy frame drum and speeding darbouka would come to be important components of later Brahem recordings including Conte de l’incroyable amour and Astrakan café.

Beyond the improvisatory brilliance, Barzakh gave notice also of Brahem’s gift for writing arresting themes and luminous melody, as illustrated by “Raf Raf”, “Parfum de Gitane”, “Kerkenah” and other pieces here.
