Algerian in Montreal, Canada, with jazzy piano. Elle marche bien, n'est ce pas?

If you scroll down a bit, she does a piece where she has added vocals to an Erik Satie piano piece. It works beautifully. Yes, she marches tres bien.

Elle est très bien, la musique aussi d'ailleurs.
She's quite unique, too. There are moments when she calls to mind Barbara. Of the great Arab divas there's possibly something of Asmahan - a certain gravitas I think. There's also a strong echo of Topic's excellent compilation "Women of Egypt 1924-1931", especially the wonderful tango that is track 2. Hmmm, Egyptian tango from the 20s - music doesn't get much more world or fusion than that I think.
