ALI HASSAN KUBAN WALK LIKE A NUBIAN CDPIR432 CD £ 12.85
In Egypt a wedding singer doesn't just perform at the reception - he brings the party. In the case of the late Ali Hassan Kuban, those celebrations lasted for days, which might explain why he was a Cairo favourite and even performed at the wedding of Egypt's president. After the mysterious Egyptian Funk blast of his first European release 'From Nubia to Cairo' made its indelible mark on the world music scene, the man himself set out on tour. The sparkling percussion, driving electric bass and groovy horns of his dynamic ensemble laid down a new set of instant classics. His band has roots in tradition, but funk it up and pack the dance floor with music that forces the feet to move. If the rifferama bass doesn't get you, then the percussion will. Even when Kuban slows it down soul still oozes from every note. Slinky, muscular and absolutely irresistible, it's ancient funk with modern power. 1. OM SHA'AR ASMAR MEDAFFAR

EGYPTIAN SHAABI ALL-STARS STREET MUSIC OF CAIRO HMC1395 CD £ 12.00
Shaabi music originated in the restive urban culture of the streets of Cairo. It was like a revolution – it could be heard in every shop, taxicab, restaurant and home, and spread like wildfire because it was danceable pop music that gave listeners a chance to vent their feelings about love, romance, money, dreams, or anything worth longing for. It helped the joyous revel and celebrate life… and those who were down on their luck or victims of the pitfalls of urban life were able to find solitude in this new style of music. "Street Music of Cairo," presented by The Egyptian Shaabi All-Stars, is a collection of lively, high-energy songs for listening or dancing. If you put Egyptian Shaabi All-Stars into Google it only finds this album and it appears to be a compilation by various uncredited artists. Very nice though......... 1. ORGOS

SHEIKH AHMAD AL-TUNI THE SULTAN OF ALL MUNSHIDIN (2 x CD) 306097-2 CDx2 £ 13.20
Ahmad Al-Tuni comes from the village of Hawatka, near Assiout, and is one of the last great munshidin (singers of the instad dini, the islamic sacred song or hymn) of Upper Egypt. Beneath the starry sky of the nights without end when the Sufis celebrate their rituals in the villages of the Upper Nile region, all is dusty and dimly lit; then, as the night lengthens, its penetrating chill gradually seeps through the air, mingling with the fervent clamour of the devout. From the midst of this somewhat chaotic expression of faith, the munshid's voice rises forth and induces via the dhikr ( literally a memory or remembrance) the state of trance common to Sufi ritual.

VARIOUS ARTISTS CAFE CAIRO 5298162 CD £ 10.10
According to the booklet this is a collection of classics from some of Egypt's golden era legends. It is not only for nostalgia, but also for all the newcomers to this again fashionable trend. So light up your shishas (water pipes), start the music and enjoy the spirits of Cafe Cairo. Well having had a listen I sat back stunned. These Cairo cafe's must be absolutly huge to have the singer, the massed mixed chorus and to say nothing of half the Cairo Philharmonic Orchestra and still leave room for the hundreds of applauding customers. 64 Minutes 1.
