Album Review
Manoneet Singh
Reviewed 2004-04-11
One of the coolest assortments of world “club” music I’ve heard in a long time. The tracks featured here cover a wide spectrum of music, representing a variety of genres, moods, and languages; each one is exquisitely crafted and utterly hip. Pick a style, then play away.

Track 1: Catchy, upbeat, bossa-nova pop. Lilting fem. vox (Brazilian + English).

Track 2: Afrobeats mixed with hiphop/R&B rhtyhms. Male + fem vox., interesting lyrics (English).

Track 3: Lovely Middle-eatern melody with some fine tabla, violin, and spanish guitar. Tempo changes from mid to fast, then back to mid and finally slow as the track progresses (Instrumental).

Track 4: Classical South Indian piece mixed expertly by SF dj Chebi I Sabbah. Fabulous, multilayered percussion. Brief., traditional chanting at 2:30 & 4:25.

Track 5: Beautiful guitar and soft, dreamy fem vox by raspy-voiced Argentinian singer. Catchy and very chilled out.

Track 6: Techno-ish track with heavy tropical percussion; Cool, meditative fem vox. (Brazilian)

Track 7: Very very dancey. Fabulous flamenco.

Track 8: Opens with child vox, then heavy
electronic percussion. Pakistani pop.

Track 9: Slow tempo ballad with grave, melodramatic feel; Fem. vox. The liner notes call the singer the “Madonna of Uzbekistan”. Easy to see why.

Track 10: French carnival pastiche from street theatre group Lo'Jo. Colorful, circusy number with growling male vox and a bunch of offbeat instruments.

Track 11: Reggae with electronic sendup.
