Al-Atrach was such a badass, if he had lived any healthier he probably could have lived a life more flamboyant than Liszt.

Back in the late 1990s before really had a good listent to the Turkish/Armenian tradition, I really got into his Egyptian/Syrian-style and the many recordings that were available at the time. I found it especially interesting how people so loudly responded at his live gigs in the middle of his taqsims, reminding me so much of what one could expect at traditional Korean folk music performance of any sort. Got my first Oud not too long after but the top cracked a few years later in my studio from extremes in humidity.

There is a certain "plunk" of players in the Egyptian tradition that sounds really masculine to my ears, like they're ripping the thing to shreds while going between extremes in dynamics.
