Memory Lab The slapstick atmosphere from the opening title track of this album might catch you on the wrong foot, however this could be Khawam’s interpretation of his journey “to the west”. The second track “Barari” is a touching ballad with a trumpet guiding through a moment of grief – powerful but also very fragile until the protagonist picks himself up and concludes on a high note. Overall Khawam produced a debut LP which unfolds beautifully with excellent Arabic jazz all around.

Favorite track: Barari.
