As a passionate defender of Arab music, Munir Bashir was in constant rebellion against the misrepresentation of this music and its use for commercial ends. He spent several years fighting to establish his Arab lute al-‘ûd as a solo recital instrument and travelled the world as a true ambassador for Arab classical music, bringing it to specialists as well as to a larger audience. Munir Bashir improvised from fully authenticated sources. As much creator as performer, his music was forever evolving, never repetitive.
• CD 1: Munir Bachir live in Paris (1987)
