Latvian Ethno Jazz band “Baraka” is offering its listeners a two-hour long musical journey across wonderful Tajikistan. The new album is entitled after the well-known band “Shams” that has been warming the hearts of people of Middle Asia for many years. Now the beautiful melodies of contemporary Tajik and Afghan composers have become available to the European audience. The musicians of legendary “Shams” have highly evaluated the new sound of their tracks. The band from Latvia has always pursued the goal of transferring the beauty of Tajik arts and people to the music-lovers of western countries. Recording of this album has included the participation of a number of appreciated musicians from Latvia, Russia, Tajikistan, Katmandu, Lebanon and Afghanistan. A double CD Baraka “Shams” complemented by the artistic cover design created by an Israeli creative agency will be a worthy asset to any music collection. This new album represents another cultural bridge between the peoples that only recently have been living in the shared environment and now have found themselves so apart.
