Nostro Going through my Bill Laswell phase ~ early 90's, I stumbled on this release as a vinyl 'cut out' bought from New York. Not long back from the Middle East it took me directly to the Arab markets of East Jerusalem. HIghly recommended for those that like 'oriental' music and the oud. Simon Shaheen is a master! Favorite track: Sittel Habayeb.
