Aeham Ahmad & FRÉ Album Download + Handwritten Holiday Postcard
This album is coming out on March 11th 2022. But we decided to do a very special Christmas pre-release action. You can now order this Christmas card in our webshop containing a unique Bandcamp download code, the album artwork + personalized Christmas wishes. <3 This way, you can already listen to it, before anyone else!
We’d be super happy if you support us. 10% of our profits will be donated to Music for Moria, a community music movement that is collecting donations for Connect by Music and raising awareness for the situation on Lesbos Island.
The album contains 9 tracks. 4 songs which we wrote in his home in Warburg and recorded in Kassel. It was so special to be welcomed into his family with Julian Bohn for a week, play music, play games with his very cute kids, hike up the Desenberg in the snow and eat incredible Syrian food prepared by his mom, wife and a family friend.
In the songs I tried to tell Aeham’s story as I know it from his beautiful book and what I learned through our many conversations. Also I wanted to feature Tahani’s ( Aeham’s wife) story. I interviewed her about her childhood, upbringing, religion, being a woman growing up in Syria, sisterhood and motherhood. She is an artist too and her painting is the base of this artwork.
The other 5 tracks were recorded last Summer when Aeham and Tahani visited us in Doetinchem. We recorded them in our livingroom. I love the intimacy of these recordings.
We wish you and your loved ones wonderful holidays, and we hope you enjoy the music of this project we poured a lot of love into.
