    Souad Massi's "Raoui" came out at a time when I wanted to return to non-American music, but I was looking for something that sounded complete, something with soul, something that was going to take me deeper into contemporary music without gimmicks. I listened to a stack of albums in the "World Music" section at the Virgin Mega Store and after nearly abandoning my search I came across the inspired talent of Souad Massi from Algeria. Souad Massi's sound is sometimes described as Algerian folk/rock, this maybe somewhat true, I'm not sure what to call it. I'm attracted to her lamentful ballads as well as her more urgent themes. Description Debut album by Algerian vocalist who is based in Paris. Thealbum fuses North African styles with western pop and folk,utilising both the acoustic guitar and the oud. Massi composed each of the songs and delivers them in either French or Arabic.
