Album Notes
The Baladi Blues Ensemble plays the urban Egyptian dance music known as Baladi.

Their music echoes the sophisticated yet fast-paced, urban sounds of 1950’s Cairo, whilst emphasising the uncompromising artistic vision of bandleader Guy Schalom.

Percussionist, dancer and record producer Guy Schalom was described as "one of the most interesting and versatile percussionists working in the UK today" (fROOTS).


“Outstanding, fresh and compelling as well as technically superb… absolutely spot on” fROOTS
