Mraya

Abdel Ali Slimani, 1996

An assured debut from Invaders of the Heart singer Ali Slimani. Algerian rai roots find solid ground with trance-like grooves. The hand of Jah Wobble's production dub is unmistakable.

Reviews

  • Amazingly the album blends WobblesÂ’ nimble slippery rhythm sense with the traditional melodic sense and orchestral voicings of Slimani without obviously compromising either. Brumbeat (UK)
