CD Reviews

If you like Ofra Haza...
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In the tradition of Ofra Haza's Yemenite Songs, Yosefa Ha'Dari's work follows, but with a more modern twist. Imagine that a Yemeni had spent some time in Lebanese and German clubs, then come home with the technosound still ringing in her ears... that's this album.If you're a fan of Arabic music, but can do without the wailing repetitiveness, buy this album. I've loved it."

"Yosefa's The Desert Speaks....I've had this CD for several years now, and I still love it. Yosefa uniquely blends several ethnicities of music together. You can definitely hear each influence--Israeli, Yemenite and Moroccan. I have used two of her songs for Rope and Trapeze routines. Her other CD (from 1993) was not worth the purchase!"
Must be popular the world over...

"...I first heard it while riding in a taxi cab in Seoul.Enjoyable "world music," takes songs from a variety of sources and then applies modern pop music gloss. Closest referents Ofra Haza and rai. Not up to Don Was - Khaled standard in terms of either the hooks or inventiveness of the arrangements, still enjoyable "crossover" appeal. One song in English, brief translations of the Hebrew lyrics into English in the accompanying booklet."
