Gibran says, “Music is the language of the mind.”
After collaborating with Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi on their latest work, popular artists Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash have announced the release of a new album titled “Sand and Foam: Music Inspired by Kahlil Gibran”.
Inspired by the work of writer, poet, and visual artist Gibran Khalil Gibran and nearly all songs named after his works, this album also marks the first collaboration between the Indian music duo and Grammy Award-winning record producer Kabir Sehgal from the United States.
Each track in “Sand And Foam” attempts to take us on an immersive journey exploring the concept of identity and belonging, discovering oneself, and highlighting Gibran’s deep and stimulating reflections on how to do it.
8 tracks in which the talented trio meticulously combines Eastern and Western artistic traditions, blending classic Indian soundtracks in captivating harmony with jazz, trap drums, and fresh synchronization.
All tracks from the album are excellent original works, making a very valuable contribution to the cultural heritage of world music. Its main instruments are sarods and we hear how these highly rated instrumentalists successfully and talentedly transmit the sounds of our planet to space.
“Sand and Foam” is a track that can be described as happy in its notes, ideal for outdoor listening because it contains tones that keep you focused and other tones more lively, while “Fable of the Forerunner” is a follow-up track that plays the role of activity, reflection on details, and arousal of desire.
“Prophets of Prose” This track envelops us in a lively mist of sentiment, in which focus words target the indignation of social events with a powerful cry for justice that can be described as revolutionary. “A Tear and a Smile” is a path that spiritually elevates you to a place of serenity where you can feel that all is well.
This wonderful work has a unique and remarkable appreciation because it expresses the beauty and the feeling of the real soul. If you haven’t tried this kind of music, listen to the album “Sand and Foam: Music Inspired by Kahlil Gibran” and immerse yourself in the world of enchanting sounds of Kabir Sehgal and Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash.
