AllMusic Review by

This collaboration between famous Egyptian percussionist Hossam Ramzy and Celtic/New Age multi-instrumentalist Phil Thornton evokes the musical traditions of Egypt with startling grace. The duo's third album, ENCHANTED EGYPT builds tantalizing sound webs on Ramzy's percolating percussion and Thornton's keyboards, guitars, and flutes for an East-meets-West tapestry that is sure to please fans of global fusion. This music will fire the imagination, start toes tapping, and expand the listener's consciousness with its lithe ambient grooves.
