Having Turkish-Egyptian family roots and being raised in Dubai at the Arabian-Persian Gulf then moving to Cairo at the Mediterranean and the Red Sea were enough reasons to create a musician like Ahmad.. saturated and familiar with varied cultures.

About the album

Having Turkish-Egyptian family roots and being raised in Dubai at the Arabian-Persian Gulf then moving to Cairo at the Mediterranean and the Red Sea were enough reasons to create a musician like Ahmad.. saturated and familiar with varied cultures.

Starting playing the bass at the age of 20 was kind of a blessing for him as the self taught musician started to explore the instrument and finding his own way of playing and expressing his musical ideas and life experiences that he already had!

And by travelling the world as he performed more than 5000 concerts, TV shows and workshops in 30 countries and currently living between Turkey and Europe, Ahmad’s diversified musical ideas were pied with more different colors and flavors.

    This is an extraordinary recording of a highly talented musician using a very special instrument. And yes, these three ‘expletives’ are necessary to do justice to the quality of this album.
    TRPTK has a reputation to uphold as regards it recording technique, and this release again finds the studio in total harmony with the artist. The dynamics of all the strings, even the individual finger-movements, and the sonority of the instrument’s body are all beautifully caught.
    As I understand, Hani uses a custom semi-acoustic (bass) guitar, without frets, which will delight listeners with an aural mélange of sounds reminiscent of bass, guitar, ud, and sitar at the same time.
    Technically Ahmad’s playing is at the highest levels, but what makes the album so captivating it is atmospheric quality. Oriental rhythms and structures blend suavely with classic improvisation. Warmly recommended!
