Living The Dream
This piece starts with Chopin Nocturne played by Abbas Abboud who's the co-composer and co-arranger of this piece, then the tunes of Oud emerge with the vocals of Beshar AL Azzawi, improvising with a spirit of ancient Mesopotamia. Then then the piece turns into a funk, empowered by the drum track of Michael Anetsberger, and the flawless E-Bass of Osmar Okuma, with the piano, screaming electric guitar, and Oud converse with intense passion. This is an "unusual" piece by all standards! I hope that you guys like it :)

FunkyLami
Based on an Iraqi Maqam called Lami, this piece has the elements of Funk, Jazz, and Iraqi Makam. That work is empowered by using a floating bridge Iraqi style Oud, playing a long the funky rhythm. The Flute, played by Sandro, beautifully blends with the Oud creating a passionate "dance" on the funky rhythm of Michael and the warm, artistic and elegant bass line played by Osmar. Adding to that, an improvised vocal "Mawal" singing an ancient love poem.
