A Saharan stunner – hypnotic music from longtime Saharoui music masters Group Doueh – mixing traditional Moorish instruments with modern guitar and synth with transcendent beauty! It's the third set of music by the group we've seen from the great Sublime Frequencies
label, and it's definitely the the cleanest sounding, but there's nothing here approaching gloss or convention, it's raw, emotionally resonant music that's probably their best on record. The instrumentation includes the tinidit (a 3-string lute), the ardin (a kora-like harp), the tbal (a clay drum) and kass (tea glasses) along with guitar and Korg synthesizer – and uber-passionate vocals. Honestly, every time we hear a Sublime Frequencies
release we wonder if it's the best one yet, and Beatte Harab is another on that superior level! Includes "Kar Wazan Abyad", "Mawal Lakhaal", "Badbada", "Beatte Harab", "Waydana", "Yadanat Lamayma", "Kar Labyad Doueh" and more.
