Ali El Khatib: riq and mazharThis January 2008 recording from the Wisseloord Studios in Hilversum (NL) is not the first time that the famous Lebanese singer Rima Khcheich records with Dutch jazz musicians Yuri Honing and Tony Overwater and will certainly not be the last. The jazz musicians feel very comfortable with the Arab idiom and though the music – as all lyrics and music are written by Arab poets and composers - sounds much more Arab than jazz, there is certainly a fruitful interaction between the two.
