Waves of My Life signifies the harmony between ups and downs, noise and silence, a pluck on a violin chord and a sharp staccato on a snare drum, it basically illustrates highlights of my life through symphonic pieces of euphonic melodies.
Every piece of music in my album has its own theme and expressive identity, it is an international blend of music which exhibits my pride in Arabesque melodies and my awe towards western orchestrations, sailing with your imagination in a cinematic voyager, proving that music will always be a universal language.―Ihab Darwish
