Album Review
Reviewed 2003-12-09 
A good introduction to the variety of music coming from the Arab world, with special attention paid to the oud. It’s a nice selection of sounds and styles and could make fans out of those who’ve never been exposed to Arabic music.

*1. Sweet, too short. A nice mid-tempo folk song.
2. Transglobal techno groove w/Atlas’s orgasmic vocals.
3. Interesting electro-gnawa w/male vocals.
*4. Very cool uptempo violin/oud/percussion jam.
5. Layers of percussion, female vocals, strings. Mid-tempo.
6. “The Boy George of Rai.” The techno buzz is distracting.
*7. Uptempo strings/perc/flute. Great oud playing, almost jazzy
8. Vocals/oud/perc. Nicely melodic..
*9. A catchy, mid-tempo blend of oud/vocals/perc.
10. A brassy, bouncy, band & male vox/chorus.
*11. Oud played Flamenco style. Unusual.
12. Female vocals, live audience sound. Just OK.
