"While this set has some nice songs, this isn't necessarily Nass el Ghiwane at their best. Emphasis was obviously put on Gnawa music and the Maalem Abderrahmane Paco since the band was approached by BUDA records of France to play a Gnawa album to add to their "Music from the World" catalog. And this was way before the Gnawa explosion of the late 20th century that Morocco has been witnessing for the past five years. There are some odes to old Ghiwane songs like El Kelma and mostly Zad el Ham.This CD gives a nice listening but it is plagued for not being neither Nass el Ghiwane nor traditional Gnawa, just so you know what you are buying. If you like this record and Gnawa music in general, I advise you to get Abderrahmane Paco's CDs that he made after he left Nass el Ghiwane in 1993."
One of my favorite albums

"I bought this CD because Moroccan music is one of
my favorite genres. Of the Moroccan albums and CDs
that I own, this has become one of my favorites.
The drumming and stringed instruments (sorry, I don't
know the name of their instruments) are absolutely
the best, and the singing is good too.
If you like Moroccan, get this."
