Over the past several years the experimental music scene in Lebanon has blossomed to produce some of the most exciting improvisers on the international circuit. Coleman and the Sehnaouis have performed together several times, most recently at Lebanon's 5th annual Festival of Free and Improvised Music for which the Sehnaouis are a staple.  Judging from a recent recording, the sets are taut and subtly textured, and the music is delicate, their moves being generated from a deep listening as much as masterful playing.
