compiled by Gülbahar Kültür - LA FLEUR ORIENTALE
Lola’s World Records presents new album series, embarking on a new unique journey over the colourful landscape of oriental culture and immersing into new dimensions of music
LA FLEUR ORIENTALE
It is a collection of tender, mesmerising melodies and hot oriental rhythms tastefully selected by the renowned music curator DJ Gülbahar Kültür; a ride gliding in a dynamic flow to expand the boundaries of inspiration, where western sounds meet the rich tradition of oriental music and create an east-west divan of 17 outstanding musical pieces.
Coming up with a totally new chapter of her successful compilation series DJ Gülbahar Kültür’s choice of eclectic music does an incredible job in creating an ambiance both to unwind and to knock the dust of the dancefloor in the same album: beginning with wanderings in sun-drenched comfort zone beats for audio aesthetes, the album progressively evolves into a festive dance fireball burning up with oriental passion.
Artists from different countries mingle on LE FLEUR ORIENTALES and present a matchless musical experience full of warmth and pleasure. Iranian animation filmmaker, illustrator, singer and songwriter Marjan Farsad’s deeply touching song Setareye Soheil opens the album followed by a sweet, smooth Bossa Nova from one of the most established and complete modern artists in the slick underground Lebanese and International scenes Tania Saleh.
