A World in London - Episode 10 Tue, 2011-09-13 19:00
Prime ambassador for Egyptian rhythms and scales is percussion maestro, Hossam Ramzy. Ritu was thrilled to meet him two years ago at A World In London after having carried him around in her record box for over 10 years…or rather..his CDs! In this follow-up session, Hossam returns to AWIL and gives his perspective on the new ?Spring? in Egypt. Accompanied by Brit-Greek Cypriot producer & composer Chaz Kkoshi (check out some of his creations on The Inbetweeners soundtrack) Hossam reflects upon working with greats like Khaled, Robert Plant, & Shakira, and how he assembled an all-star cast for his latest album: ? Rock The Tabla?, featuring A.R. Rahman, Billy Cobham, Omar Farul Tekbilek, Jimmy Waldo, and more, is out now on the A.R.C. label.
Join Hossam?s drumming circle on September 25th at the Attic Rooms, Fulham. ?Jam with Hossam!?
