This is an exception. I usually do not like mixed sample albums. French producer and engineer Jérôme Ettinger, however, respects his source material and deftly applies his electronic hip-hop, trip-hop, and electro sounds as accents and atmospheres. At its basis is a group of Middle Eastern musicians playing traditional melodies: Sayed Emam (vocal and kawala); Ragab Sadek (darbouka, duff, riq, sagats, doholla....the percussion man); and Salam Metwally (rababa and violin). In addition, Ihab Radwan plays oud, Julien Bonvoisin performs on bass, Camille Momper bows the cello, Carlos Robles Arenas pounds the drums, and Nocolas Berrivin is at the piano. Ettinger himself, besides programming his computer, plays the arghul, a truly ancient double-pipe but single reed flute that has an adjustable pitch drone. The album is a collaboration. It is much contemporary Egyptian alternative rock. It is not New Age, and the atmospherics are minimal. Though strongly rhythmic, the album can be mellow, edgy urban, romantic traditional, even spiritual. It thus defies simple categories. Track 7, Soufi (Sufi), is truly heartfelt. The final track is a live recording. No translations of the various lyrics are provided, which is a minor deficiency. The absorbing, well-crafted album lasts 37 minutes.
