5.0 out of 5 stars high drama vocals, dance beat and sumptuous orchestra, 3 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Lebanon/Algeria (Audio CD)
This is totally amazing - although i was initially daunted by the 14 minute long songs, I soon settled into their sweeping, melodramatic and slightly mesmerising structures and found myself under the spell of Warda's alluring voice. This is a very accessible way into non-Raļ Arab music and is very dancable. The underlying beat of songs like Hobak Wesl Madah and Ya Saeedy is infectuous and combines really well with the string section. Warda, or, the Rose of Algeria, has a more Mediterranean sound to the other greats of the Cairo circuit and this funky intro is perfect for the, as yet, uninitiated.
