More than ten years in, Hijaz, an instrumental Arabic jazz combo, is searching for the perfect symbiosis between Mediterranean warmth, polyrhythmic structures, and musical virtuosity. In a tight formation of four core musicians, Hijaz captured the magic of the moment during two live sessions in Brussels and Antwerp. The result of those recordings is 10 Years - Live Recording, an album celebrating the ten years of existence of the band. The album consists of new and old material, and is presented exclusively on vinyl. After Dunes (2008), Chemsi (2011), and Nahadin (2014), Hijaz developed a very personal musical language where Arabic scales refer to the Tunisian roots of oud player Moufadhel Adhoum, and where the asymmetric grooves find their roots in the Greek origin of piano player Niko Deman. It is the dialogue between piano and oud that lays the foundations of the music, supported by percussion and double bass, occasionally enriched with flute. Includes download code.
