4.0 out of 5 stars Wild and whirling music, sharp in every sense., 20 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tzenni (MP3 Download)
Wild and whirling music, sharp in every sense.

This album leans more to the tribal than to fusion, despite the electric guitar of Noura's husband, Sheikh Ould Chighaly. That has a lot to do with Noura's vocal acrobatics, which are very special. The album loses a point for me because it is somewhat repetitive, although I admit that complaining North African music is repetitive is like complaining that chili peppers are hot.

The title track, Tzenni (which means "spinning") has had a lot of praise, and is probably the highlight of the album. But there isn't a lot of range here, and if you don't like griot vocals (Noura is Mauretanian, a child of the Sahel) you may find this CD a tad monotonous to listen to in its entirety. Taken in small doses, it's an exciting newcomer.

Highly recommended to fans of North African music!
