'FERA' by Maurice Louca and UAE Musicians
Fera is Maurice Louca’s new long-form composition, with microtonal guitars, violins and Feral percussions, he picks up from where he left off in his latest record Saet El Hazz (The Luck Hour) while adding more synthesizers and electronic explorations this time around taking it more in the Acoustic/Electric realm, he will be joined by Lebanese Percussionist Khaled Yassine and Egyptian Violinist Ayman Asfour. For this very special collaboration with Cultural Foundation – Abu Dhabi in celebration of Abu Dhabi’s designation as "The City of Music" by the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, Maurice will create a new rendition of this composition in collaboration with local Abu Dhabi musicians, an Emirati percussion ensemble and featured guest musicians from the South Asian community.
