(5 out of 5 stars)
"The history of Mauritanian music and poetry is intriguing and complicated. The two are intertwined. From the start with Ya Habibi, Malouma weaves her musical spell. Her voice is also an instrument, and the accompaniment of her sister singing background echos the deep resonance of her singing. Every time I listen to this CD I hear something new. I love the mix of Arab, African and in Fa Fa Fa (an adaptation of an Otis Redding song) Western influence, although the music and lyrics tend more to a Moor flavor. You don't have to know what the words are about to get into the groove of this music. It will take you there. In Mauritania, Malouma is their , and it becomes obvious why."
