AllMusic Review by

Lebanon's Wadih el-Safi is a "singer's singer," the favorite of many vocalists more commercially successful than he. Arguably, no contemporary singer can equal his command of the quartertones of Arabic music, and he is credited with the best male voice in the region. He also has a wide stylistic range, from fairly traditional to highly syncretic pieces.
