Driven by complex additive rhythms and improvisatory melodic lines, "Arabian Waltz" is a propulsive work by Lebanese-born composer Rabih Abou-Khalil, whose works fuse the musical traditions of the Arabic world with jazz improvisation and European classical techniques. The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma performed this piece at the Park Avenue Armory in New York, NY. For more on the Silk Road Ensemble and the Silk Road Project, visit http://www.silkroadproject.org
