Artist: Dalinda Album: Turquoise CD Review:
A new world music diva is crooning into town, by way of North Africa-Arabia. Hossam Ramzy, who has performed with the Rolling Stones, Page and Plant, Sting and Peter Gabriel, is driving another world beat party by making sure east meets west like he always does. Middle-Eastern sounds fused with energetic Western bests and sounds, is how they put it officially.
Anyone who’s not been privy to Hossam’s work hasn’t lived. You can feel the world growing smaller every time one of his discs finds an electric eye. The only difference this time is having lovely Dalinda fronting above the saz, nay, magrouna, bouzouki and other difficult crossword puzzle clues that instrumentalize this 47 minute cd into winning shape. It shan’t leave my personal collection.
