Product Notes

Born in London in 1975 to Syrian parents, Mazin moved to Syria at age two and lived most of his life in the village of Alkafer. He received inspiration from the people of the village and this fed his musical soul. He was inspired by the sound of the instruments and wanted to learn to compose. With family's support, he started to play Accordion at age five, with no instruction and found no difficulty to sing and transfer the melody to his fingers. The first song he played was "London Bridge Is Falling Down" as his father always sang it to him. At age nine, Mazin composed his first song for his school's theatre. He won the national competition in Syria for composing and playing Accordion twice, in 1985 and 1986. Starting to learn more instruments by himself, he began playing the Oud (Mid Eastern Guitar or Lute) at thirteen, then Nay {Arabic flute or bamboo) at sixteen then Piano and keyboards, plus Arabic percussion (Tabla, Reqe, Katem) by listening to the extensive library of Arabic music and learning a lot of songs. Mazin's first project was with English singer Terry Hall for the album called The Hour of Two Lights. He played Accordion, Oud and contributed arranging for the eastern musical section. It was played on BBC Radio and 3MTV. He joined the multi-cultural band NARA, with musicians from the UK, Ireland, Lebanon, Syria and Egypt, introducing Eastern music to the West. He performed at World Music Festivals and venues in the UK, Canada, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Greece, Ireland, Croatia and Czech Republic. Mazin produced a CD by re-arranging traditional Egyptian songs that have been performed by famous Arab singers between 1960-1970. He also performed at Royal Albert Hall in 2005 as an intro band for the famous Arab singer Rageb Aalamaa and famous actor Waleed Tawfeek. This album represents influences from Eastern and Western music combining Latin, Jazz, Classical Gipsy, Turkish and Arabic music forms. The Legendary Mixer, Tom Moulton asked to remix these incredible recordings and jumped at the opportunity to work with Mazin and what you hear is the result of a labor of love and respect for the music.
