Quadro Nuevo recorded the music on this CD for a documentary entitled “Two Half Lives” in Antakya, a city in the southeast of Turkey near the Syrian border. In ancient times this place was called Antiochia and it was here that the Apostle Peter built his first Christian church in a rock above the city. The Habibi Neccar Mosque and the tree of Moses can be found here as well. Antakya is a magical place where religious harmony and peace reign.

Music from the documentary “Two Half Lives”

Some time ago our travels led us to Antakya, a city in the southeast of Turkey near the Syrian border. In ancient times this place was called Antiochia and was an important cultic and cultural centre. Paul the Apostle had great influence here and it was here that the Apostle Peter built the first Christian church in a rock above the city. The Habibi Neccar Mosque and the tree of Moses can be found in it as well.
Antakya has a long tradition of the peaceful coexistence of different religions and ethnic groups: Muslims and Alevis, Jews and Christians as well as Turks, Arabs, Kurds and Armenians live together harmoniously.

We were there to write and record music for a documentary entitled “Two Half Lives”, made by the German- Turkish director Servet Ahmet Golbol. It is a very personal film about this city, its people, the search for identity and the omnipresent “Taqammus”. In Arabic, “Taqammus” is a special form of reincarnation, where the reincarnated remember the life they have left behind and therefore have to join together their two lives and two identities.

Our time in Antakya was wonderful. The music that we created there is steeped in the smells, sounds and sentiments of the city, in the encounters with the people of Antakya and in Ahmet’s touching documentary. From time to time we long to return to such places and days.
