You may well have heard Warda (born Warda Al Jazairia) as background noise in some Middle Eastern restaurant and not thought twice. But a closer listen to this heady mix of Eastern rhythms and Western contemporary pop just might put your head in a spin. Warda's sultry voice is set against a background of lush strings, finger cymbals, and assorted exotica. All the tunes here run an average of eight minutes, but if you decide to explore something a little different, you may just thank yourself.
