Fresh musical ideas are mixed with traditional sounds from Morocco, Lebanon, Turkey and Iran amongst others to create a relaxing and constantly interesting album. Although most tracks here are fairly rhythmical and quite funky they are perfect for chilling out to in the evening. Great modern world music.
Magnificient ... groovin' and movin'. Swirling middle eastern melodies combined with a western beat oriented rhythms make for a very enticing package. Great music for a middle eastern/asian imspired dinner party with the second disk for the adventures after dinner party! This compilation is far better than the overrated and overpriced series oritinating out of France. The CDs are not mixed and the production is very good. Grab it now and treasure it while you can.
