Considered by Sting to be one of the best singers in the world & featured on his current hit 'Desert Rose'. Cheb Mami is an Algerian Rai singer & one of the most famous singers in France where 'Meli Meli' was released to platinum success. It's an awesome document that shows why Mani is one of the most respected middle-Eastern artists in existence today. 1999 release. Standard jewel case.

"I have been interested in rai music for a time being since I began to listen Rachid Taha's Diwan album. I first realized Cheb Mami in a song named Desert Rose by Sting and I was quite impresed with his voice. If you like to listen something different and you like to tap your feet while listening this album is simplt the best for you. I especially recommend this album to poeple who are already acquinted with arabic tunes."

"A great Middle Eastern CD!If you want a great introduction to rai,choose this one!
I reccomend the tracks "Meli Meli","Bledi" and "Azwaw 2." The last one pairs Arabic music with Celtic music.It is fantastic.These are the highlights,but there are no fillers.Perfect!
I wonder what has become of Cheb Mami since his collaboration with Sting in "Desert Rose." He's great!"
