Youssef Ziedan - Nabateo lo Scriba
Italian | Neri Pozza | 2012 | ASIN: B008NA43V6 | 331 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Imponente romanzo storico che ricostruisce magnificamente l'atmosfera delle terre dell'Impero bizantino al sorgere dell'Islam, Nabateo, lo scriba costituisce una splendida conferma del talento di Youssef Ziedan, l'autore di Azazel. È un caldo giorno di primavera del VII secolo quando nel Borgo a oriente del Delta egiziano, dove vive una piccola comunità cristiana, arrivano i mercanti arabi. Costantinopoli è lontana e, in questa parte dell'Impero, non vi è traccia della strenua lotta di Eraclio I di Bisanzio contro Persiani e Arabi. Dai loro brulli deserti, insieme con la polvere gialla che vaga in ogni angolo e copre tutte le strade, i mercanti arrivano con le loro larghe mantelle rigate di fili luccicanti, i turbanti bianchi avvolti sulle teste, gli occhi truccati con il kohl, alla ricerca di donne in un villaggio abituato a svuotarsi delle risate delle vergini.

Sette luoghi è la storia eccezionale e tragica di un ragazzo arabo segnato, suo malgrado, dall’incontro con la Storia e i tragici eventi della sua terra. Uno straordinario romanzo di formazione, scritto da uno dei più importanti scrittori egiziani contemporanei, che guida il lettore nel cuore di un conflitto oscuro, lontano dal «jihad più grande… quello dell’anima». «Un magnifico romanzo… che rappresenta semplicemente la storia di un arabo contemporaneo».

Azazeel by Youssef Ziedan

Azazeel by Youssef Ziedan
Atlantic | 2012 | ISBN: 1848874278 | 320 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Set in the 5th century AD, Azazeel is the exquisitely crafted tale of a Coptic monk's journey from Upper Egypt to Alexandria and then Syria during a time of massive upheaval in the early Church. Winner of the Arab Booker Prize, Azazeel highlights how the history of our civilization has been warped by greed and avarice since its very beginnings and how one man's beliefs are challenged not only by the malice of the devil, but by the corruption with the early Church. In sparse and often sparkling prose that reflects the arid beauty of the Syrian landscape, Azazeel is a novel that forces us to re-think many of our long-held beliefs and invites us to rediscover a lost history.

Singer and oud player Dhafer Youssef is one of the most appealing stars of world music, yet his music still resists categorisation within that vague genre. Last year we heard him in a "supergroup" with Omar Sosa and Anga Diaz, but he sounds more comfortable accompanied by the talented crop of Norwegian musicians loosely associated with "nu-jazz".
This cool style of playing, loose-limbed and hard-edged, provides the perfect backdrop to the Mediterranean warmth of Youssef's compositions. The most significant collaborator is producer-guitarist Eivind Aarset, who supplies backdrops of wide-ranging style and density, while remaining empathetic to Youssef's musical personality. Youssef can be deep, light-hearted, complex, funky and achingly romantic, sometimes all within one song. The album's pace is leisurely, full of atmosphere, groove and great playing, but rarely self-indulgent; you never forget whose album it is. By taking the most positive aspects of nu-jazz, Aarset and Youssef have forged a thrilling new sound that could make Divine Shadows a crossover hit.

Although it's a dual-leader album, in which oud player Dhafer Youssef's performance is at least as important as that of guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, one of Glow's chief causes for celebration is Muthspiel's on-form presence. After releasing the shimmeringly beautiful Bright Side (Material Records, 2006)—a little-known masterpiece which may yet take its place alongside such jazz guitar iconographs as Johnny Smith's Moonlight In Vermont (Roulette, 1953, reissued 2004) and Wes Montgomery's Incredible Jazz Guitar (Riverside, 1960)—Muthspiel's project with drummer Brian Blade, Friendly Travelers (Material Records, 2007), was a disappointment, interesting in conception but not entirely convincing in execution.

Diwan Of Beauty And Odd, the first album Tunisian composer, singer and oud player Dhafer Youssef has recorded with an all-American band, carries all the trademarks this exceptional artist is known for: beautiful melodies, heartfelt chanting over infectious grooves and great artistry on his instruments, as well as of all musicians performing with him. These young jazz musicians understand Dhafer's musical world perfectly, and thoroughly enjoy the music making – just listen to how perfectly trumpet player Akinmusire plays in unison with Dhafer or how pianist Aaron Parks duets with him on Fly Shadow Fly. Although the album is more rooted in jazz, his traditional Sufi chants give it a unique and touching quality.

Even in the adventurous territory of jazz, this French-Vietnamese musician stands out as a unique explorer of sounds. His new CD will surprise even those who believe themselves to be, by now, familiar with the diversity of his musical output. The first unusual fact: Most of the tracks were recorded in Lê’s living room (pardon me, his salon), and also completed à la maison using his computer. The second unusual fact: This domestic method of producing music need not conjure up the cosy, well worn realm of familial comfort, in fact Nguyên Lê leads the listener into a space that is full to the brim with warped sounds and acoustical metamorphoses.
