Letters To My Best Friend marks a new stage of Qais Essar’s award-winning rabab playing, and in his evolution as a composer.
In this deeply personal EP, Essar blazes a middle path between worlds, drawing from both eastern and western classical music, prog, freak folk, and jazz. The result is a sublime instrumental narrative which envelops listeners with nuance, depth and emotional power.
