Boomkat Product Review:
Ankh is the Egyptian symbol of life, of fertility and of growth. From the rich tonality of Dance of Ka to the exuberant Clown Dance, Soliman Gamil draws on ancient Egyptian culture to create soundscapes that transcend the stereotypes handed down from films like Cleopatra; in the process they also challenge the shrink-wrapped mentality of 'world music'. On Ankh, Soliman Gamil plays 17 different instruments on 15 new compositions written and recorded since the 1960s. The cover comes complete with full colour artwork that features a painting by Panni Charrington.
