“The Celestial Gates Open for Ruel’s Tamboura”

It is with heartfelt regret that the Assyrian nation shares in the loss of another music legend. . . "Albert Ruel Tamras" ~ lyricist, musician and singer, who died today in his Phoenix, Arizona (U.S.A.) home.

Celestial, haunting and magical are words often used to describe the simple, yet powerful sounds of the tamboura, an ancient stringed instrument for which the late singer was famous.

Among his internationally celebrated releases are songs "Asmar Asmar," "Ghazala," and "Hal Qedamta." It is known that, to date, he has one album, "Miryewen Rikhka," recorded and released in Baghdad, Iraq in 1975.

OMG what a loss! I heard about it from his nephew Stuart Benyamin, and it is indeed a great loss.  Albert Rouel inspired so many of our current Assyrian singers and the sound of his tamboora will always be in our memory.

God rest his soul.

We still play his songs in my house.  May he Rest In Peace.
