Format: CD with DVD

From the start of his career, Abed Azrié has been drawn to poetic language and text, which he considers to be an "aesthetic memory of mankind." He works with the rich poetic sources that encapsulate this memory, and that have been transmitted to us through history. In poetry, Azrié searches for a world where passion combines with wonder, meditation, dream and mystery. On this album, Azrié lends his deep, tender and expressive voice to the verse of Adonis, one of the greatest contemporary Arab poets. Adonis has constantly sought to renew Arab poetry by not only referring to the great civilizations of his origins but also by contemplating the rich diversity of Western culture. The set includes a bonus DVD with a recital recorded in May 2011 at the Insitut du Monde Arabe.
