Album Review
Reviewed 2005-03-11 
He plays darbouka (Egyptian tabla), guitar and oud and has performed with Hossam Ramzy, Robert Plant & others. It’s based on Moroccan folk & classical songs but while this might actually be the “rhythms” of Morocco, the addition of keyboards, strings, sax, etc. give it a decidedly modern take. Not for purists, but recommended for fans of percussion.

1. A bright wedding song. Not the best track.
2. Like an orchestra playing belly dance music at a disco.
*3. Catchy, hypnotic blend of perc & strings. Great beats.
*4. Lively & sweeping.
*5. Percussion jam of various rhythms & sounds, very cool.
*6. Soaring strings, perc. An evocative, mostly midtempo journey.
7. A bit overdone, but lyrical w/some nice flourishes.
8. Violin & percussion. Lively, well played.
9. Strings/perc. Changes of theme & rhythms, interesting.
10. 19+minute epic of changing sounds/moods/beats/themes. Cool
11. Uptempo dance w/lots of perc/strings.
