GlassVille Music is pleased to welcome Lion Shepherd to our roster of artists. The band is a new music project by Kamil Haidar and Mateusz Owczarek in which the musicians their inspiration in ethnic music. The music they create is a mix of world music, trance, progressive rock, blues, and Middle Eastern motifs. Among other performers, the album features Jahiar Irani (an Iranian musician who has made recordings e.g. for Kayah’s Transoriental Orchestra album) and Rasm Al Mashan (Naxos Orchestra, Soomood). In addition to traditional European instruments, there will be the Syrian oud lute, the Persian santur, and various Indian and Arabic percussion instruments. The project led by Haidar and Owczarek involves not only musicians but also graphic artists, filmmakers, design artists, people working with mapping art, and even fashion designers. The artists involved in the project will create unique performances that go far beyond the traditional notion of a concert.
