Overview

One of the finest records of the wildly-heralded "Rai" movement, Meli Meli is a true vocal lovers record. Mami's voice is one of the most versatile and powerful in world-pop music today. His three-octave range is truly something to behold, and his use of it on such songs as "H'Rabti" and "Parisien Du Nord" and others will leave you breathless. Originally released to platinum success in France, Meli Meli is an awesome document that shows why Mami is one of the most respected middle-Eastern artists in existence today.

H´rabti is the best song on this album and it has the best violinsolo I have ever heard on it made by Santiago Jimenez Borges on electric violin. Too bad the recordcompany has made the mistake to think that this violinist has anything to do with the mexican accordionist by the same name. Please correct your information. Santiago JB is from Cuba, lives in Sweden and currently works in Paris. Santiago Jimenes Borges also plays the violin with Mynta. He is very special. If you listen to him once you´ll want more. Best regards from Ylva, Stockholm.

I enjoyed Chen Mami's part in Sting's CD and became interesed in him. I bought this CD and it is wonderfull. All the songs are tastey. Even my four year-old daughters like it and even sing the song, eventhough we do not understand the lyric. It is awsome. If you buy it you will enjoy every minute of it.
