Notes

Released in Digipak with a cardboard sleeve.

COLORS MUSIC is a new series of compilations featuring contemporary tracks from around the world. It is not about folk or traditional songs. It is about different ways of understanding and introducing new musical contexts.

OTTOMANIC presents music from an imaginary modern Ottoman Empire. The longest of the Middle Eastern empires lasting for more than five centuries and gathering the cultural richness of the Byzantine, Greek, Balkan, Persian and Arabic cultures, the Ottoman Empire became an example of cultural synthesis and mix never seen before. During that long period, music managed to absorb all of these traditions and survived by giving up its autochthonous richness to become the synthetic form that has lived on to this day. This compilation pretends to retrace that spirit, taking as a musical epicenter Turkey, from where more electronic and jazz influenced western sounds are spreading, and traveling through Iran, Iraq, Israel, and Egypt.

The track selection is wide-ranging, keeping alive traditional structures and modes, while also giving space to experimentation with other styles and forms. A true eclectic musical journey into Middle Eastern contemporary music.
