4.0 out of 5 stars A hypnotic tajeen of Middle Eastern pulse, 1 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Arabesque Zoudge Vol. 2 (Audio CD)
Having enjoyed "Arabesque" so greatly, I was delighted to spot Arabesque Zoudge on sale.
Other reviewers haven't enjoyed it as much as the first album, and yes, it *is* different, but I have enjoyed it with equal relish as the first. Less mainstream pop with an Arab twist, this album feels more traditionally Arabic in its selection: those deep throbbing rhythms that awakens something in the soul; the beautiful and haunting moaning of the female singers, including the brilliant Natacha Atlas and Andrea Monteiro; those clear and hypnotic flute and string riffs which cut straight through and echo each other over the pulsating percussion.
1,2,3 Soleil's "Khalliouni Khalliouni" is performed live brilliantly and I challenge any listener not to tap his foot, nod his head in time, or even stand up and swing his hips.
I also enjoy the packaging - a triple gatefold interior which houses the CD itself tucks into a printed cardboard sleeve. The indication is that this is more than just the music, it's a whole experience.
And I loved it.
