“Those are the spirits of my ancestors calling from the Mellah of Meknes, from the mountains of Kurdistan. The unheard voices of my culture, that was taken from me. I shall talk to the spirits, I will heal the wounds. I was asleep, now I am awaken.”
Berlin based, Jerusalem pioneer Roi Assayag aka Tropikal Camel serves up his new album, ‘Awakening Spirits’. The album title is a wordplay: in Hebrew & Arabic, winds, spirits & ghosts are the same word – Ruaah. This title is polysemic: spirits are representing the mystic research that is eternal, winds are representing drama and conflict , ghosts are the voices from the past… the word awakening symbolizes the future.
