Mauritanian music has been unavailable for so long, this would be an important release even if it were not also an absolutely gorgeous example of the enormously rich brew of Afro-Islamic nexus. The two women singers featured (the country's most famous) sing in a contemporary-traditional idiom like those of Fanta Sacko and other Malians. This is a total must-have. ~ John Storm Roberts
