HADA RAÏNA .... Sweden
(a) Fatma 4'49

(Slaves of Freedom) [independent]
Formed in 1994, this band has members from Sudan, Algeria and Sweden. Their album needs a little more production work at times, but certainly holds up as an honest document of their early work.

Wonder Wonder 6'02
(Femi Kuti) [Tabu]

A tribute to Femi's dad who died last weekend. He'll be remembered for having guts, to express through his music, how he felt about a range of political and social injustices, regardless of the personal consequences.

Khalif Ould EIDE & Dimi Mint ABBA .... Mauritania
Independence 6'16
(Moorish Music From Mauritania) [World Circuit]
Opens with an ancient Yemeni poem of verses in praise of the prophet.

Habib GUEROUMMI .... France

Beautiful sung poetry (all given in the cover notes) with a fine androgynous voice, and oud accompaniment.

Nikola PAROV .... Hungary
Anonymn 7'44
(Kilim) [Hannibal]
A funky-jazzy Balkan style mixture with other instrumentalists from the Riverdance project. The occassional vocals are a little too wild for me, but it is an interesting fusion.

Yulduz USMANOVA .... Uzbekistan
(a) Scooch Ya Gado 6'45
(b) Maida 4'45
(Alma Alma) [Blue Flame Records / BMG Distribution]
Substantially a pop album geared for the US market. She sings with electronics and traditional instruments.
