Multi-instrumentalist musician and composer KHYAM ALLAMI presents AMYGDALA featuring Layale Chaker (Violin), Christine Zayed (Qanun) Daniele Camarda (Bass Guitar) and Andrea Belfi (Drums & Percussions).
A cinematic and soundtrack-inspired exploration of Arabic electro-acoustic plucked strings and microtonal synthesis, as equally influenced by Popol Vuh and Gustavo Santaollala as by Middle Eastern maqam and the slow complex rhythmic cycles of the Andalusian muwashshahat.
Amygdala was originally comissioned by AFAC - The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture and debuted as part of their Wish You Were Here summer film festival in Berlin on 17 August 2017.
