A complete change of pace. nothing like a change! Abdel Aziz El Mubarak is Sudanese and plays a popular music like no other.
I will not comment much about this album as I am not sure what to say, sufffice I first heard it on a cover CD for Songlines and was smitten. After months I tracked down the CD and was not disappointed, intense, joyful, danceable all at once.
This album was voted by the world music magazine, Songlines, a few years ago as one of the greatest world music albums ever released.
Who am I to argue?
Just listen to the sample to be convinced.
Keep listening !!!
