Arabesque Tlata 3 comes highly recommended by the BBC and I personally dig it. It has folks like Nitin Sawhney and Natchta Atlas and is pretty good. I am skipping the full review, because I don’t think it is worth writing about something which speaks for itself.
It’s not often that the third album in a series is better than the first two, but four years after launching their concept, the compilers of Arabesque have really found their feet. This selection has been made by a trio comprising, Mourad Mafouz, owner of Momos Restaurant in Londons West End, together with Stephane Malca and Hakim, respectively the live music programmer and DJ in the Kemia Bar in the basement underneath it.
