ChalChal's first album.

The songs included are folk songs (local language & Japanese translation) that have been loved for a long time in the Arab and Middle East regions such as Iraq, Arabic translations of the Japanese song "Furusato", and original songs.

The main instruments used are traditional Middle Eastern stringed instruments such as oud, guitar, various percussion, and nay, all unplugged live performances.

It is an ambitious work with an experimental and pop arrangement, such as trying to collaborate with the unit "Gnawa Tokyo" that plays Moroccan Gnawa music.

Raised funds with crowdfunding CAMPFIRE, calling for "Let's make a CD that brings energy with songs to overcome the era of Corona!"
