Wine Got Lost in Syria

It is a text and a composition written by Ali Asaad. Ali used his Syrian Levantine Arabic dialect writing the text, utilizing a blended approach of genres in the composition, ranging from arabic maqam singing techniques to scatting, and a wide range of influences by electronic music, all along with contributions by Simmy’s violin and Josh’s Kora that flow with texture of the work. “Wine” designates the thrill that is reached by using the spiritual drink historically in the levant by literati, in kind of sessions or rituals.
