For his latest album Rabih Abou-Khalil fulfilled a wish he had for a long time. He gathered around him musicians who, after decades of intense cooperation, were not just long standing companions, but had also become close friends. The recording took place for the first time in his house and his own studio in the South of France. The result is probably his most intimate work to date.

With the musicians of this project gathered in small groups consisting mainly of trios, Rabih Abou-Khalil introduced for the first time the bass oud, specially built for him by German luthier Robert Eibl. It is an enormously large instrument tuned one octave lower than the regular oud and has a very distinctive warm and powerful sound.
