New Salaam CD: Train to Basra

$945 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 31 people in 57 months
This past year has been a very creative one for Salaam, and we are now putting the final touches on our new album, "Train to Basra and other stories". For the first time, the CD will entirely showcase my instrumental compositions. The liner notes contain stories that I wrote about each of the tracks. Our release date is October 22, 2013, which is coming right up.

We are so close to being done, and have spent a lot of our own currency making it happen. But there are still more expenses leading up to the release, and so we are hoping to find some advance support for our CD. Whether it be simply buying a CD, making a donation, adding an evil-eye protector amulet or booking us for a house concert, I do hope you'll consider supporting us through this final phase.

I am really proud of this album. Tim and I started out with an amazing recording session that included Amir ElSaffar, Lety El Naggar and Steve Harms, and later brought in Svetla Vladeva, Sam Finley, John Orie Stith and others. We feel so fortunate to be able to work with such amazing musicians, and feel confident that you will love it!

Thank you so much for reading this. Salaam!
