Lion Shepherd is a project helmed by Kamil Haidar and Mateusz Owczarek and takes inspiration from Middle Eastern music, Trance, Progressive Rock and Blues. The band will release their debut album ‘Hiraeth’ through GlassVille Records on November 20th. The album features Jahiar Irani and Rasm Al Mashan (Naxos Orchestra, Soomood) and combines traditional European instruments with the likes the Syrian oud lute, the Persian santur, and various Indian and Arabic percussion instruments.
A compelling, hypnotic and powerfully strange debut offering. Pre-order here.
