"His voice is finer than Khaled's in it's twisting around emotion. The arrangements are complex, highly syncopated - often with a samba feel.
So much more the tragedy of his demise - when religious zealots steal music (the true religion) from our needy souls.
This is a good starting palce to explore Rai, since it's not as pop as some of the bigger names but very danceable."
