Album Review

Calling this a Cheb I Sabbah album isn't totally accurate. The original tracks are his, of course, from La Kahena, but the versions on Ghriba: La Kahena Remixed are from 11 other producers, all of whom bring their individual outlooks to bear.

Great for those rumbling bass bins, but your downstairs neighbors might not be too happy if you play it loud.
