AllMusic Review by

Performed by the El Gusto Orchestra of Algiers, El Gusto is the official soundtrack to Safinez Bousbia's heartwarming documentary, which reunites a group of Jewish and Muslim musicians who were torn apart during the Algerian War of Independence in 1962. The 42-piece band, described as Algeria's answer to Buena Vista Social Club, showcases its traditional chaabi sound on 13 tracks including "Je Suis Pied Noir el Hmam" and "Min Yaati Kalbou Lil Melah."
