The pieces on this album tell the true story of Emily Ruete, born as Sayyida Salme, Princess of Zanzibar and Oman, who was banished from her homeland by her brother the Sultan because of her forbidden romance with a German trader. According to local legend, Taarab music, created by the Sultan, is what Emily reminisces about as she sails away from Zanzibar. To recreate this sad tale, some of the finest talents from the world of contemporary Taarab music were recruited.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
