Information from owned CD, (t)=text, (m)=melody. Purist stay away; a lot of fun from a dynamic group but few interpretations are very questionable, other are truly arrangements and the rest is quite acceptable. Although they say in their introductory notes that the modern interpret should be extremely careful about arabic influence, arabic influence is pervasive in their interpretation.
