This is the second album released in 1989 by 3 Mustaphas 3, an indeterminate Middle Eastern music group formed by the Mustaphas clan from the village of Shegereli, deep in the Balkan Peninsula. According to information on the Internet, they mastered various music and languages from around the world while playing as a box van at a local 24-hour club, and developed a style with a multinational feel. In his later works, he also developed radical Arabic music with elements of new wave and dub, but this work has a strong ethnic orientation with elements of traditional music from Eastern Europe and the Middle East, as well as African music, mixed in with his Balkan roots. However, the performance itself is a cutting-edge sound that responds to the world music movement of the time. This is an interesting group with each piece having a different flavor.
