Throughout his four-decades-plus career as one of Brazil’s most popular singers, Gilberto Gil has restlessly sought new avenues of expression, from the heady and fiery psychedelic Tropicalia of the ’60s to his 2002 album of Bob Marley covers, Kaya N’Gan Daya. But there was one thing Gil had never attempted until now, an album spotlighting nothing but his voice and guitar. Gil Luminoso is, by its very nature, one of the most intimate recordings he has ever made and, not surprisingly, one of the loveliest and most moving.

Gil’s tender, placid voice and understated guitar work project much warmth and soulfulness, and despite the lack of accompaniment it’s as whole as any music he’s made before. Gil, Brazil’s Minister of Culture at the time of this recording, reached into his considerable songbook for 15 songs that would be apropos for solo presentation, and chose material from as far back as the late ’60s: romantic, spiritual, political, philosophical. It’s quintessential Gil, at his finest, sans help. This CD was nominated for a Grammy award in 2007 for Best Contemporary World Music Album.

A leader of the Tropicalia movement in Brazil in 1967 and 1968, along with artists like Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil and other musicians mixed native styles with rock and folk instruments. Because Gil fused samba, salsa, and bossa nova with rock and folk music, he’s recognized today as one of the pioneers in world music. A multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, Gil joined his first group, the Desafinados, in the mid-’50s and by the beginning of the ’60s was earning a living as a jingle composer. Although known mostly as a guitarist, he also holds his own with drums, trumpet, and accordion.

The modern day destiny of the Kurdish people is at the heart of this album, beginning with an instrumental and vocal piece which gives it its title, Kobane. This hymn to the city that is both a martyr and a victory on the Syrian border, in which the text states that the Sirvan River protects Zoroastrianism’s sacred fire, interconnects traditional melodies and percussion instruments unmasking exchanges and an opening onto that world, confirming that no culture will ever again be inaccessible.

Sohrab Pournazeri’s (composer) singer, tanbur and kamanche player and percussionist, Hussein Zahawy (musical director) gather Ertan Tekin who plays the zorna, balaban and duduk, the singer, Donya Kamali, African percussion specialist, Robin Vassy, and the santur player, Mayar Toreihi. Together, they make music that is no longer obviously from the villages, but it has kept this radiant and combative soul which has passed through through the centuries. This music which sketches a future that is open to the world seems like a rebound, a bridging, an awakening. And this sound here pierces thr Continue reading “Nishtiman Project – Kobane (2016) {Accords Croises AC 164 – Kurdistan (Iran – Iraq – Turquie}”
