Ahmed Fakroun   NEW
Mots d'amour (Celluloid, France, 1987)
Wow ! The unique album by Paris based Libyan singer Ahmed Fakroun. So funky ! Of course the highlight here is the 80's oriental club hit "Soleil soleil", but "Jama el f'na", "Love Words" and "Gelty" are worth a listen (the first one being more trad fusion groove, and the other more on the 80's tip). Press kit included. So rare !
