    Music: Haytham Safia Qu4rtet

    Last year ud-player Haytham Safia could be admired solo on Winternachten, now he can be heard in a quartet. In addition to Haytham (Jerusalem) the group consists of Afra Mussawisade (Iran), percussion, Hanneke Ramselaar, oboe and Eva van de Poll, cello. In 2007 the CD Promises was released. And Qu4rtet surely is a promise. Listen to the title number: inventive, virtuoso and full of musical zest. Each number is a gem. Influences from classical western, Arab and Persian music and jazz, blues and medieval music are welded together effortlessly.
