Los Angeles-based label Pipe & Pochet has released a new compilation album that highlights artists from the Middle East region.
Titled “Without Borders”, the compilation which has been curated in collaboration with Gio Israel includes 24 tracks. That's just what it is; a selection of soothing, organic and dreamy house music that spans Ali Farahani, Ephlum, Sydka & Bawab, B.o.T, Darko De Jan, OHAD, Majnoon, Burcu Karadag and Gio himself, among other ones mainly consisting of regional artists. With a plethora of ceremonial and traditional sounds from outstanding talents of the region, the compilation purely bridges the ancient and the modern.
With over 20 years of travels through different world traditions, Gio has dedicated the past years to recording ceremonial and traditional sounds from around the world and more specifically the Middle East. Now, some of the world's brightest talents, including some new and emerging artists, took these recordings and created their own versions inspired by these sounds. All proceeds made from “Without Borders” will be donated to Musicians Without Borders, an NGO providing children in areas of conflict with musical education.
