Fatima Lahham: bulbul

Fatima Lahham (recorder)

bulbul. Nightingale. The migrating bird, suspended between skies: never home, always on her way there. The bird who sings to the rose, the soul that yearns for the divine. The bird who suffers injustice and is given a new tongue. This album takes inspiration from the stories of the nightingale to imagine different ways they might sound through the recorder. The proximity of birdsong to the sound of the recorder is evident, yet here recorder player Fatima Lahham uses it to push at the boundaries of how the recorder is meant to sound; the stories is it meant to tell, the histories it is meant to embody.
