With "Camel Road", the second "Sharkiat" recording produced by Face Music, it is even more clear how deeply Fathy Salama and his fellow musicians are committed to the back-to-the-roots concept. Fathy himself is continually proving this with other groups, such as the percussion ensemble "Gouzour". The implementation of this particular concept cannot be equated with purely nostalgic and often also transfigured entertainment music emulating some other trend. Rather more, it is the case once again of asserting a claim to present current, contemporary music - although of course, with a much more accoustic effect in comparison to the first production "Camel Dance".

Out of this arises a form of music which - in contrast to much of what appears as recordings under labels such as "world music" - does not form some unfounded conglomeration created in the minds of producers, ultimately shaped by a Euro centric body of thought, but on the contrary, adapts current trends of musical creation in an inspired way as well as traditions in actual existence in the sphere of the performers.
Encounters with outstanding instrumentalists, such as Kamil Erdem ("Asia minor") are ultimately really ideal pre-requisites for more than just a surprising and exciting sound.
