Don't Know Much Arabic....

I bought this in CD format when in Dubai a couple of months ago. A guy working at Virgin Records in the Mall of the Emirates recommended it when I asked for Arabic music selections. At first, I was struck by her looks but loved the sound over the instore headphones. I know very little Arabic but love the singing and the beats behind her. It reminds me of a great vacation whenever I listen.

Simply captivating

Honestly, what first attracted me to look at the CD was the amazingly gorgeous woman on the cover. I bought the CD because I saw that it won the world award for best international album. The sound is captivating. She sings so beautifuly, it just blows me away. The first song, Bastanak is my favorite. This is a CD that you can put in and let it run its course.....awesome.HIGHLY RECOMEND
