MP3s

Song :: Nostalgie
[ download ]
Artist :: Cirque du Soleil
Genre :: world fusion

Comments :: Haunting minor-key folk piece; the Cirque du Soleil is known for superlative OSTs. Arabic? Pish. XD I can recognise words in Arabic, whereas I can't even identify the language of this song - I suspect something Baltic. Czech, Lithuanian... What I can tell you is that the melancholy-sweet string instrumental beginning at 1:40 is the Chinese erhu. It works, perfectly.

Song :: Oran-Marseille
[ download ]
Artist :: Khaled with IAM
Genre :: raï (or if you prefer in this case, Franco-Arabic hip-hop)

Comments ::Oran is the birthplace of modern raï, and Marseilles is where its international stars were made. Raï occupies roughly the same position in French music as bhangra does in England, or latin in the U.S; with forays now into rap and dub that give French hip-hop a much needed shot of authenticity in the arm, albeit from an unexpected direction. (It may be worth noting that the "ghettos" of France are fundamentally Arabic in the same way as the American ghetto is black, at least in the national imagination. Ever wondered what would happen if, say, the U.S. gov't took a position on the Middle East that pissed off all the black people in the country? Yeah. But that's a discussion for another time.)

The sound is perfect fusion, more like trip-hop than anything else. The rhymes are ill (though Arab youth alienation is a hot-button topic, and anyhow most of you will have to take my word for it). As for Khaled, he is Khaled.

Layout

Is it?... It is! Sabina's obsession with bizarre layouts strikes again! George and Yukari in extreme shoujo stationery pink - plus glam rock for bonus points, because it just wouldn't be good form to let a Paradise Kiss layout slip past without a Velvet Goldmine reference.
