    Africa North spotlights the beauty and longevity of Islamic music. Designed as a conduit to ecstasy, the works on this album feature the sultry but transcendental rhythms of the darbukka drum, highlighted by the oud and ghaita, but also integrate other musical elements, including strings, electronics and other folk instruments. Setona, Hossam Ramzy, Abdelli, Drummer of the Nile and other artists come together on Africa North, delivering a modern spiritual experience with their music. ~ Heather Phares
