The Lebanese singer melds traditional Arabic music with Bossa Nova and jazz-funk on this cult classic.
Fairuz’s Kifak Inta is set for its first-ever vinyl release through Wewantsounds, this November.
The 1991 album, originally released only on cassette and CD, was produced by Fairuz’s son, Ziad Rahbani.
With a career that has spanned over six decades, Fairuz initially garnered popularity in the 50s through collaborations with the Rahbani Brothers. She began to work with her son Ziad in the 70s.
The release, which maintains the cassette’s original artwork, has been newly remastered by Colorsound Studio in Paris and includes liner notes from Mario Choueiry of the Institut de Monde Arabe.
