Flying Carpet Quadro Nuevo and Cairo Steps

£6.99

Product description

Hailing from Germany, Quadro Nuevo has built a career assimilating musical influences from around the globe. While it's not unjustified to call them a jazz group, they've elevated their sound exploring the worlds of Argentinian tango, Austrian classical traditions, Indian raga, and Romanian folk customs, among others. The term “world music" may be a bit diluted and vague after years of being thrown about by record labels and PR firms (besides, isn't all music of our world?), but Quadro Nuevo has unquestionably earned the title considering their passport-friendly approach to composition and improvisation over the past 20 years.

With Flying Carpet they've collaborated with Cairo Steps, a relatively new collective by way of Egypt spearheaded by pianist Matthias Frey and oud virtuoso Basem Darwisch. Based on their first collaboration from back in January 2017, Flying Carpet features Quadro Nuevo and Cairo Steps building their unified sound augmented by the inclusion of flute, string quartet, and notable Sufi singers Ali El Helwabi and Sheikh Ehab Younis. The album features a tasteful blending of instruments and musical elements of widely divergent cultures, albeit while still exploring familiar ground for Quadro Nuevo.

Oxfam Shop Oxford

17 Broad Street, Oxford, was the UK's first charity shop when it was opened by the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief in 1948, and has traded here continuously ever since.  The shop was on the ground floor of the charity's offices, and the whole organisation officially changed its name to Oxfam - the telex address - in 1965.  We are proud of this history, highlighted by the Blue Plaque outside the shop, and consider ourselves one of Oxfam's flagship shops.

We sell a huge variety of donated clothes, accessories, homewares, music, stamps, coins, pictures and postcards.  We also sell New Products, including Fairtrade food and gifts, beauty products, diaries and calendars, as well as an excellent range of greeting cards.

We are in the heart of Oxford, and are lucky enough to receive a wide diversity of quality donations.  Our wonderful team of volunteers from around the world supports Oxfam's mission by selling everything from eclectic vintage clothes to quality vinyl.

We look forward to seeing you!
