Tonik's Lab

Palestinian-born musician Marwan Abado has resided in Vienna for nearly forty years. The album "Longa Vienna" emerges just before his reflective gaze at these decades. "Longa" denotes an oriental musical form introduced to the Ottoman Empire from Romania by the Roma people around the mid-18th century. Originally a fast-paced dance music signaling the conclusion of a concert, Arab musicians and composers within the Ottoman Empire embraced and further developed this form as a part of the Arab instrumental music tradition. "Longa Vienna" serves as a musical odyssey through Vienna - the cultural crucible of the city becomes audible, resonating with the vibrant life of the urban landscape, imbued with colorful, poetic, and intricately woven musical narratives. The contemporary Viennese sound, as interpreted by Marwan Abado on oud and vocals, Maciej Golebiowski on clarinets, Arnulf Lindner on bass guitar, Peter Rosmanith on percussion, with Syrian singer Dima Orsho as a guest, captivates listeners with it's rich tapestry of melodies and rhythms.
