    I wonder why I never heard him before, his tracks feature world psychedelic east west fusion with afghan flavor (always love hammond, sax, trumpets with sitar, robab, tablas and so on) and great singer of course. Too bad that the quality of the tracks is medicore and has too much reverb for my taste. But it's great nevertheless.

    Так... как можно загрузить полную версию некоторых песен? основной трек- лайли-лайли. Отличная версия, где Ахмад поет с девушкой, у которой очень милый и капризный голос (никто, кстати, не знает как ее зовут?)
