A new Album released!

“[…] Sāqiya ha l’orecchio teso alla storia. Suoni belli e marini. Partiture da amanuensi. Ricami barocchi su tarantelle dalle trame irriconoscibili, dai tempi immaginifici. Meraviglie allegre e colorate. Un frasario di parole virtuose che attingono al crocevia di culture: arabi, francesi, e sopratutto spagnoli. Storie di incontri, di scambi, di sorrisi. Ma anche di sopraffazioni.”
Emanuele Coco
(dalle note di copertina )

“Sāqiya gazes at history. Beautiful sounds, coming from the sea. Music scores written by amanuenses. Tarantellas intertwined in baroque embroideries, in a game of disguise, on allusive grooves. Bright and colorful wonders. Virtuous words drawn from an endless dictionary at the crossroads of cultures: Arab, French, and above all Spanish. Stories of encounters, exchanges, smiles, yet stories of oppression”  (from liner notes)
