AllMusic Review by

Music of Sufi snake-charmers for double-reed and percussion, Gnawi incantations backed by guembri bass guitar and Soussi bardic ballads with lute and percussion. Though not all recorded in the marketplace, this is the pure, unmediated music presented at fair length (in one case, 20 minutes). This magnificent music is technically super, but has feeble notes, a characteristic of recent CDM releases.
