This was my first foray into arabic music and i bought it whilst backpacking thru the middle east. I thought it would be a bit dry, Far from it. This is a blend of heartfelt vocals and superb music that stands up in the east or west.

Finally there are some more arabic singers here. This is so good, bastanak is a TUNE! although i do prefer her Ahla Dounya album- koul youm fee omri is the best! x
