"The performance of the M'djanba and Mazmum noubas presented here on this double CD requires warmth, both of soul and of feeling. The crystal-clear tones of Beihdja Rahal ring out in her radiant interpretation of these classical pieces from the Andalusian-Algerian repertoire. This genre is also accompanied by traditional instruments such as the tar (percussion), the darbuka or goblet drum, the lute, the violin, the kwitra (springed instrument) and the qanun (zither) and demands total respect of its rules, its harmony, rhythms and melody. The recording as a whole offers the listener an intense emotional experience."
