Performed by Imane Homsy, kanun and vocal. "The kanun is traditionally used to accompany singing. It repeats the musical phrase and is played with two fingers. Here, we see it in a new light: accompanist-interpreter-soloist on a par with any singer. The kanun as a 'complete' instrument, in fact, revealed in all its glory by Imane Homsy and the ten fingers technique developed by her, a technique that conjures up new ambiences and colors. The kanun has at last found the place it deserves at the heart of the classical Arab orchestra."
