Notes:

'United States Of Uslam':

Muslimgauze started at the time of Israel's invasion of Lebanon. As interest in the political situation of the Middle East evolved alongside interest in his music. Since then support for the P.L.O. has been a source of influence upon the music of Muslimgauze, more so than the ares. From political situations, Muslimgauze create a musical response.

Each piece of music is influenced by a political fact. This recording is dedicated to Palestinians killed by Israel on "Allthnen As Awad" (Black Monday) at Temple Mount, occupied Jerusalem.

'Zul'm

Dedicated to the unknown Palestinians buried in mass graves in Al-Riqqa cemetery, Kuwait City.
