“Guy Schalom’s tenth solo outing is a no-frills compilation of authentic Egyptian dance music in its pure form, no cross-cultural collaborations or influences, just vernacular dance music clearly presented and excellently executed. Magdy Tewfiks’s quarter-tone accordion takes the melodic lead and does a good job at keeping the music authentic throughout. In this he is ably supported by Ahmed El Saidi’s understated saxophone, from which he extracts a beautiful rich tone. As you would expect, the music is heavily percussion-led with riq, duff and mazhar percussion joining Schalom’s superb darabuka playing. A great introduction to Egyptian dance music for the newcomer and worthy addition to any existing collection of North African music.” fROOTS (Mark T)
