Ahmed Malek – Musique Original De Films

Since my host has been unable to resuscitate A Miscellany Of Tasteful… to its former glory, it looks like I’ll be posting interesting releases here instead.

I purchased this download about two months ago, patiently waiting for a full release (there were only two tracks available as pre-release samples), and I must say the wait was worth it. Ahmed Malek (you will read about him in a forthcoming post) was a film composer from Algeria who was, truly, the Maghreb’s answer to Ennio Morricone. The tracks are hip, charming, and have an almost Italian film feel to them.

Kudos to Habibi Funk Records, the German label who continues to release fine music from North Africa.
