مع الفنان الرائع عباس الموسوي من البحرين الشقيقة في معرض دن للفنون المعاصرة بالكويت. شاركت بعمل موسيقي ارتجالي باستعمال التراث الكويتي و الجيتار و الالكترونيات. الاستاذ عباس فنان مميز يرسم لوحات تظهر جمال الحياة في البحرين و الخليج قديما بروح معاصرة. لما قابلته صرت ابتسم لا اراديا عجبتني شخصيته المرحة و جرأته في الفن! 🇧🇭 🇰🇼 With the great Bahraini artist @abbasalmosawiart at @den_gallery . Abbas paints scenes of traditional Bahrain in a fresh and invigorating contemporary style, so they called me and I played some old Kuwaiti songs with a twist in response to his work. I could not help but be joyful in his presence, the man has a unique and uplifting energy!

Everything feels possible when you’re surrounded by loving and supportive friends. Pictured here post gig in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was a very hot summer’s day in 2015 with some of the dearest people I’ve known #lovemusic #friendshipismagic #visions #strongertogether

First rock concert I’d ever attended. Also first concert I ever played. It was a festival in Shaab Park and our band played first!! The festival got shut down at one point because of complaints of demonic music. Anywho, first experience. I was terrified, still can be, and it still feels good. #throwmeinthedeepend #challengeaccepted #rockfest #kuwaitmusicscene #throwback #fadetoblackmetallica 🤘

‎يا ابن الكرام اشتكى حين أخلفت وعـداي
‎وعليّ مـازال سقـم الغـادرة وعـداي
‎انظر لسقمي وشوف مصيبتـي وعـداي
‎يشهد عليّ الصبـر والحـال مني فنـى
‎أبات انهـش يمينـي والمـداوي فنـى
‎إن جيت تسأل عن جنابي يا مليحي فنـا
‎طايح بحملي ما بين حواسـدي وعـداي

An experiment with an old Zuhairi poem my grandfather Bu Yaseen, allah yerhema, used to sing as a "nahma". I set it here to a (very) loose Haddadi Mukhalef rhythm

I am imperfect, and cannot always strike a balance between the darkness and the light.
Cross these old woods with me. Slowly, to really breathe with the oak. The tree sap drips, as does time from my spirit. You have seen me broad and seen me hollow. I have been tall and many times afraid of my own shadow. Centered and wild. Yet the sun and the moon are always watching. One cannot be without the other.

‎الا يودان بمصاحبة جيتار معدل دوزانه للمقام البياتي. اغنية كويتية قديمة و اللحن بالاصل فن خماري بس عزفته باسلوب و ايقاع مبسط. لا تسألوني ليش لاصق بالكاميرا. المهم انشالله التطورات مستمرة لفكرة الجيتار المقامي و سامحونا على القصور

A simplified version of an old Kuwaiti song Ala Yudan played on a guitar tuned to Maqam Bayyati. Don't ask me why I'm so close to the camera hehe
