â€œA must-have album for every Assyrian household.â€ â€“ FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (February 17, 2008)
EASTJAM Music Entertainment is pleased to announce their new release by Assyrian recording artist Walter Aziz, titled â€œGeneral Agha Petros Revisited: A Tribute To A True Assyrian Heroâ€. The album is a remake of his 1982 classic, â€œGeneral Agha Petrosâ€. It consists of the original 8 tracks with the same live instruments played in 1982, with a few minor enhancements. This time around, the tracks are digitally re-mixed and re-mastered with new vocals. The album pays tribute to the Assyrian World War I general.
On the title track, “General Agha Petros”, Walter features 14 prominent and upcoming artists from different backgrounds and regions, under one nation. This is the largest collaborative project in modern Assyrian music.
“To me, the message of Agha Petros was to unite our nation, and with this song, my guests on the album and I will reflect that unity through music,” Walter explains. This is a must-have album for every Assyrian household.
The album also includes three remixes by Paul Scriver, Walterâ€™s right-hand producer/engineer now located in Montreal. The remixes incorporate Walterâ€™s modern Assyrian Pop sound to the classic songs, â€œTanzaraâ€, â€œBroken Heartâ€, and â€œLion Hunterâ€.
