Ensemble Al-Asdeka takes listeners on a melodic journey melding traditional Arabic music from long ago and far away with modern instrumentation of jazz and rock. The fiery guitar work of D. Adam Estner, velvety and evocative flute melodies by Daniel Giacobazzi weave a prismatic tapestry accentuated by driving Middle-Eastern rhythms played by Kathy Roberts creating a sound that is uniquely their own. Their first CD was produced by Robyn Robins, former founding member of the Bob Seger Silver Bullet Band, who has mastered over 60 platinum albums for artists over the world. It was released in late December of 2007; and in 2008 was chosen as “Editor’s Pick” at CD baby, the world’s largest independent online music store.

Founded in 2005 by tabla-player Kathy Roberts after years of living off and on in North Africa with versatile guitarist and composer, D. Adam Estner, and Daniel Giacobazzi, a long-time artist of many instruments and genres;, the ensemble churns out hip shaking tunes that are greater Middle-Eastern in flavor, seasoned with rock and jazz influences.
