Abstract: Femi Kuti has the unenviable position of being an excellent musician and the undisputed king of Afro-beat, while also being the son of the greatest. Of course, that has tempered his sound over the years to some degree as he distanced himself by adding newer influences such as hip-hop to the classic soul-funk-jazz sound. As time progressed, he has moved into a more "traditional" Afro-beat sound with excellent results. Here, some of the best tracks from his three albums are presented. Two tracks come from the little-known eponymous debut, and a handful from each of his following releases. This is Femi at his best, crossing the divides between classic and modern, contemplative and energetic, hypnotic and pounding. The music is top-notch and the song selection equally excellent, picking out a couple of relative rarities for good measure in "Ala Jalkoum" with Rachid Taha and a star-studded cover of Fela's "Water No Get Enemy" from the Red Hot + series. It's the sheer power of the groove that will get you every time, though -- saxes wailing, drums thumping, and call-and-response vocals forcing everyone to stay in the groove. As an added bonus, a disc of remixes is included; there are fewer vocals but the grooves are extended, if that's possible. ~ Adam Greenberg

Abstract: Karuan's long awaited follow up to his debut "Dohuki Ballet" is finally here, entitled "Pop Arif". In the tradition of another famous Kurdish musician, Mohamed Arif, his music has taken a slight turn towards pop music. But neither Mr. Arif nor Karuan intended to take this route, it all came totally natural. The album title therefore, can be understood as a homage to modern Kurdish music in general and Mr. Arif specifically. His talent to incorporate the most diverse instruments into his clever and thought out arrangements have been driven to perfection on "Pop Arif". Flutes, guitars and foremost vocals are arranged and fitted into his soulful productions.His open minded approach towards other genres, is best manifested with his selection of guest musicians: Classically trained Mara Mastalir, the up & coming L'Enfant Terrible, the leftfield spoken word artist Odditeee, Lai Cheun and Metin Yillmaz Kendal. Pop Arif takes the listener on a carpet ride through Kurdish m*, down to Brooklyn and back to Vienna. (community.livejournal.com)
