Mp3 CBR320 kbps | 57:45 min | 150 Mb (5% Rec.) | Scans included
Folk, World | Label: Ajabu

Algerian-native, Karima Nayt, is a more traditionally-inclined Kabyle singer than her fellow countrywoman, Iness Mezel. The folkish, fl uid melodies are interrupted by nomadic guitars and upbeat percussion spanning North Africa s camel routes, France s guitar music, and the vocal melisma of Ofra Haza. Karima s mature voice fl oats effortlessly across the tracks with a bit of reservation to allow the instruments some room to expand on the vocal patterns. The sincerity in Karima s voice resembles the same clarity as Souad Massi with the sensuality of France s Carla Bruni. At any rate, Karima s songs are heartfelt, classic, and timeless. The thirteen tracks span Karima s eclectic and linguistic ethnic background. Some of the songs are reminiscent of Spanish, South American, or Portuguese-type music with a strong, classical- -almost fadoesque- presence. Nevertheless, the music is not a fusion project, but a wonderful journey through the Folk music traditions of Algeria s infamous Mediterranean coastline.

Alors que les étoiles de Khaled, Mami ou Faudel semblent de plus en plus lointaines, que le raï se conjugue surtout au passé, un astre d’une lumière éclatante surgit des nuages. Comme les autres, il vient d’Orient, de Sidi Bel Abbès pour être exact, mais c’est ici, entre le cœur du 18e parisien et de la Croix-Rousse lyonnaise que son orbite s’est précisée. El Ndjoum (les étoiles), le nouvel album du chanteur Sofiane Saïdi accompagné du sextet Mazalda, sonne la résurrection du raï.

The Mediterranean Sea, enclosed by two continents, encircled by a multitude of different countries, cultures and languages enjoys a rich and colourful diversity of musical expressions. With cross-migration and trade throughout history, though, we do find common or similar instruments, rhythms, and musical styles. In spite of all the differences, there is a ‘Mediterranean flair’ in all these musics.

This feast for the ears almost defies classification. Richard Horowitz is probably best known for his award-winning score to the Bernardo Bertolucci movie, The Sheltering Sky. Featured on the album is Tehran singer Sussan Deyhim; her voice is extremely expressive in an "x-tatic" Middle Eastern style, with its distinctive embellishments and phrasing. Horowitz takes recordings of her voice and layers it in subtle yet exotic tapestries and harmonies. This is not the ripoff sampling done so often on ambient dance albums. Deyhim's voice is the center of the compositions, and her artistry is always honored. At times, her combined voices sound like the Manhattan Transfer, but when the title track features 84 recombined samples of her voice, the result is very unique. Although the sound processing is important, the album features many live musicians, including world music expert Jaron Lanier and members of the Moroccan National Radio and Television Orchestra. Majoun offers layers upon veils of mysteries and never stoops to trite Middle Eastern musical clichés. Highly recommended.

Even in the increasingly multicultural western musical landscape of the 1990s, Natacha Atlas has more right than most to claim multiculturalism. The half-Jewish Egyptian-Palestinian diva is fluent in four languages and, besides her training in classical singing, she trained in the raq shari, the art of bellydancing…

People are familiar with rai or some of the more traditional music to emerge from North Africa and the Middle East, but lately there's also been an undercurrent of more adventurous music – hip-hop and electronica. The roots still shout loud and proud, but the sounds (often made by artists who've moved to Europe or the U.S.) are as hard and modern as anything, anywhere – for example, the rap of Clotaire K or Mafia Maghrebine, the edgy, skittering rhythms of U-Cef, or the powerful trance of Gnawa Impulse. And this compilation makes the ideal introduction, from the pounding beats of "A Muey A Muey," which was a revelation and breakthrough when it first appeared, to the contemporary remix of Ali Slimani's "S'Habi." The full range of the music gets an airing here, and for anyone with an urge to explore the lesser-known (for now) areas of Maghrebi music, this is the starting point.

Black Level - Disco Action (1977)
MP3 CBR 320kbps | RAR | 70 mb
Genre: disco, soul

Disco Action is a 1977 album by Black Level. Released on Atlantic Records only in Japan and Australia, none of the musicians credited on the album did anything else, so this is most likely a group of random musicians doing a disco album incognito to make the record label some disco money. It fits the mood of the time and a few of the songs are good enough for sampling usage, but it could have been any disco album made with any famous name slapped onto it. This one just happens to be by an unknown group of musicians who called themselves Black Level.
