Thank you AFAC for helping me bring my new album, 'Original Soundtracks from Independent Arab Cinema' to life. Really excited about this upcoming journey!
The project is a recording of a soundtrack album based on Suad Bushnaq’s original compositions for award-winning independent Arab films that explore issues of migration, identity, war, loss, home, family, and diaspora. The compositions blend Middle-Eastern maqam and rhythms with diverse musical genres and harmonic colors, in cinematic orchestrations that reflect the stories being told on screen and the universal human emotions connected to them.
