Lion Shepherd is a prog-oriental project led by Kamil Haidar and Mateusz Owczarek. The music they create is a mix of world music, trance, progressive rock, blues, and Middle Eastern motifs. In addition to traditional European instruments, there is the Syrian oud lute, the Persian santur, and various Indian and Arabic percussion instruments. The project led by Haidar and Owczarek involves not only musicians but also graphic artists, filmmakers, design artists, people working with mapping art, and even fashion designers.
For past 3 years Lion Shepherd heavily toured Europe and recorded two full length albums.
