AllMusic Review by

Subtitled "Berber Folklore of Kabylie," this is a treasure. Sharing some elements with rai (though much closer to their common ancestor), this music is earthier, less studio-controlled and ultimately more personal and less bombastic. The line-up is a simple one of drums, bass, flute, a very unobtrusive synth, and Igman's mandol. If rai is the U2 of Algeria, Igman is its Pogues.
