RABIH ABOU-KHALIL is a Prog Folk, Progressive Rock artist from Lebanon. Rabih Abou-Khalil is undeniably a world musician, while his eclectic style, traditional instrumentation and innovative compositions are a testament to a creative mind. He deserves a place in the ProgArchives for those talents. Bio by Bob Moore (aka ClemofNazareth)<. RABIH ABOU-KHALIL Videos (YouTube and more).
Of the many exceptional world music projects by the Lebanese oud master Khalil, this is one of the more intriguing cuts used from the soundtrack of the Yilmaz Arslan-directed film Yara. Though the verbose liner notes by Harry Lachner extensively describe music in movies, it gives little clue as to how this music connects to the flick.
Rabih Abou-Khalil (Arabic: ربيع أبو خليل, born August 17, 1957) is an oud player and composer who combines traditional Arab music with jazz, classical music, and other styles. Rabih Abou-Khalil grew up in Beirut and moved to Munich, Germany during the Lebanese Civil War in 1978. Abou-Khalil studied the oud at the Beirut conservatory with oudist Georges Farah. After moving to Germany, he studied classical flute at the Academy of Music in Munich under Walther Theurer.
