AllMusic Review by

Messaoud was not only an early pop-rai luminary but a man with the bizarre but ultimately successful notion of using a trumpet in Maghrebi music. This release, with new vocalist Cheb Ourrad Houarri, features a basically acoustic band consisting of accordion, guitar, keyboards, and rhythm.
