Bossa Nova From Lebanon, Paul Salem

Paul Salem- Lebanese Bossa Nova Artist

"Paul Salem is a Lebanese musician/composer who's been playing and composing music since the late 1970s. He is also a pianist and guitarist and composes music that fuses various elements of Arabic music, jazz, classical, and Brazilian Bossa Nova. He released his first CD "Samaa" in 1998.
His latest album,Madinatuna[Arabic/Bossa Nova fusion] is about his beloved city, Beirut . It encapsulates the richness and variety of the voices that interact within it. It is an expression of the energy and dynamism that characterize the city; the congruency and contradictions; the harmonies and dissonances. The compositions in Madinatuna are as varied as the city from which it sprung, with influences as diverse as Bossa Nova, Jazz, Lounge, and Arabic music, expressing an equally wide array of emotions.."
