Hassan Erraji's stunning new World Village album Awal Mara is a comeback disc of pure excellence. It is sure to re-ignite his army of dedicated admirers around the world as well as recruit new legions of music aficionados about to experience the aural delights and charm of his creations for the first time. The album is packed full of compelling new songs fashioned from Erraji's immense classical musical knowledge, absorbed into a contemporary music sensibility which has most certainly been given a veritable Yorkshire twist by the highly esteemed personnel involved with the project. Meticulously recorded by the widely respected producer Dave Creffield whose exhaustive list of credits include Kaiser Chiefs and Embrace, the album was actually recorded at the Leeds studio owned by one of the Kaiser Chiefs themselves. The recordings then remained in Yorkshire to be mixed and mastered in Leeds by another highly regarded producer, Carl Rosamond, who has worked with many seminal Leeds bands such as Cud and The Wedding Present. Add to the Erraji recipe an exciting new dynamic young band including the extravagantly gifted rhythm team of Kenny Higgins and Ben Stevens and all the ingredients are there to once again establish Hassan as one of the most important, charismatic, fascinating and influential artists on the world music stage today.
