Carl Gari are a trio of German musicians made up of Jonas Yamer, Till Funke and Jonas Friedlich. Abdullah Miniawy is an Egyptian musician and poet, currently based in France.

A meditative and provoking listen focussed around the poem in 'B'aj بعاج' that forms the lyrical centrepiece of the record. In this song Abdullah is the protagonist, jumping from the 8th floor of a building in Cairo. While falling he describes a unique scene happening on every balcony, painting a dark picture of Egyptian society. Carl Gari produced and mixed the record, providing a melancholic backbone for Abdullah’s lyrics and melodies.
