An absolutely legendary album from Lebanon by Issam Hajali's group Ferkat Al Ard, 'Oghneya' stands out as one of the great musical gems of the Arab world. A groundbreaking release from 1978 that represents the meeting point of Arab, jazz, folk and Brazilian styles with the talent of Ziad Rahbani, who did the album's arrangements. Filled with a variety of sounds and genres, from baroque pop to psych-folk to flashes of bossa nova, tropicalia and MPB, 'Oghneya' is like if Arthur Verocai took a trip to Beirut in the '70s to record an album.

Also available: OGHNEYA (CD).
