Ahmed Fakroun: Mots D'amour

Album Notes

Among rai singers, the pop-oriented Fakroun stands out on two grounds. First, he is influenced by Euro-pop and French art-rock, not just the generalized rock of the others. Second, he's a multi-instrumentalist in both traditions as well as a singer. He plays bouzouki-like saz, mandol and darbouka drum, as well as guitar, bass guitar and keyboards. Sometimes he seems overly crossover-oriented: but on form, his crossover deepens into telling biculturalism. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
