"This cd contain no Arabic songs all is there is kind of noise and drums, and from the spoken words i can tell that the person singing in the cd is from Moroco but i couldnt understand what he is saying . As an Arab i believe that we have a great music tradition and if you intrested in Arbic music and songs look for the famous singers in the Arab world like Um- Kalthoum , Abdulhaleem Hafez or Fairouz."
Very ethnic sound, no western style intsruments

"Once again, we have no idea who the individual is on this CD. At least, I believe it is the same individual, singing these few songs, accompanied by flute, drum, and back up vocals. The songs have many verses, so they are all quite long. They sound very traditional, and don't have any synthesizer stuff in there at all. The singers' voices are very clear, you can even tell the lead singer might have a cold as he sings one song. I only wish there were credits on the cover, so the singer and musicians could get proper credit."
Field recording of indigenous Moroccan music

"I found a picture of an album online with the same songlist. According to the back cover of the album which was previously released by Request Records SRLP8163 it is by Bachiri Zoutni who is from Goulemin (Guelmim?) in Morocco which is a desert town renowned for it's camel market. The same songs are also released on CD as Voyager: Songs of the Sahara and from the samples I'm pretty sure it's the same CD. This CD is probably best described as a field recording of indigenous Moroccan music by an ensemble. I picked it up more or less randomly because of an interest in world music and I listen to it occasionally."
