Ali Hassan Kuban, Mahmoud Fadl & more - "Egypt Noir"

Oriental / Egypt
Over the past few decades, western archeologists unearthed the remains of an advanced Black African civilization thousands of years older than Egypt's under the deserts of Sudan. But they could have just as easily discovered the funky echoes of this lost world at certain Cairo hotspots by spending an evening with the rollicking music of the city's Nubians. Egypt Noir brings together decades of Nubian urban wedding songs, giving an unprecedented overview of the neglected musical achievements of this unsung people. The enhanced CD "Egypt Noir" also offers a window into Nubian music's global past and present, with a visual tour of the great "Orientalist" paintings of the nineteenth century, images reflecting European artists' sensual vision of Egypt and Nubia, and a brand new tribal house mix of Mahmoud Fadl's "United Nubians."
