This is just a short one to let you know that Maman’s special project album, entitled Hijrah (previously known by its working title ‘Taqwa’) is now out.
Hijrah contains 9 all-new never before released tracks and a bonus track of spoken words. This limited-press album is only available by request or through its official distributor, Planet Spiritual in Singapore. Hijrah retails at SGD20 (RM48) and the proceeds will go to the 81-year old Madrasah Aljunied Al-Islamiah to improve the infrastructure, facilities and curriculum of the school. If you are in Singapore, you can get the album from the school’s gift shop located at No 30. Victoria Lane, click here for the map. The album is not available elsewhere as yet.
If you would like to have a copy of the album, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be going to Singapore on 4-May-2009 and would be happy to pick up a copy for you. If you would like to discuss distributorship, booking for shows, press interviews etc, please get in touch with Maman or Zag Fahmoa directly – their contact details are in the Contact tab on top of this page.
More details about the album, tracklisting, liner notes, cover art and its behind-the-scenes stories and reviews to come soon.
