CD Reviews

Traditional music at its best
melodius | Brussels Belgium | 10/22/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Abdelli is a Kabyle, a Berber from Algeria. He is currently living in Brussels, Belgium. This album is, as far as I know, his only offering on record. I consider this to be a prime example of traditional music at its best; rooted, but not provincial. It is also quite different from Arab music. Abdelli taught himself to play the "mandole", a typically Algerian mandoline-like instrument. He's not really a virtuoso, but his instrumental talents serve his art perfectly. Moreover, he is the lucky owner of one of the most haunting voices ever heard on record. Some of his songs have a mantra-like quality, others are very upbeat (there is even a football song !) If you have a weakness for remarkable voices, you should definitely check out this album.If you're one of those people who feel that Realworld releases are a tad overproduced, you'll be happy to read that this record is the exception that proves the rule.Personally, I'm a bit surprised how little interest this album has generated, since it is certainly one of the most interesting and original records on Realworld."
Wonderful!

"This relatively unknown group should publish more recordings! Several tracks would make interesting dance routines - some are great for zils. Even if you don't dance, these intricate rythyms, the accomplished musicianship, and a variety of beats will keep everyone interested!"
