There followed much press attention, high profile concerts and various live and recorded collaborations with artists varying from Seattle-based Master Musicians of Bukkake to Iraqi pop singer Ilham al-Madfa'i. His debut solo oudalbum, Resonance/Dissonance (released on his own label Nawa Recordings), is a double-disc, featuring a solo studio recording on the CD and a live performance of the entire album (accompanied by percussionist Vasilis Sarikis) on the DVD. The album is based on the system of maqams (the modal system of Middle Eastern music). Unusual approaches to the maqams combine with original, highly structured and detailed “composed-improvisations”. Khyam Allami also plays drums in Knifeworld, led by Kavus Torabi.
