AllMusic Review by

This is the second of three volumes of 1970s recordings by Simon Jargy. The urban music was recorded in several Gulf nations. It represents various stages of traditional urban forms, mostly accompanied by ud, solo or with percussion, and the Yemeni examples are closely linked to East African tarab.
