A new project I worked on during the last 2 weeks of 2020, I wrote a short melody Inspired by the Lebanese folk dance called Dabkeh, to celebrate the end of the 2020 year, and to dance with those who survived it! I recorded the same piece 12 times, and I shared one recording per day for 12 days, with each video featuring a new instrument and a new friend, with the 2020 Dabkeh band joining us in all the videos to celebrate the end of a messy year!
The album was released in February 2021, and is now available for streaming and purchasing through all the Major online music stores.
