Natacha Atlas, "Habibe"

Here's a quite wonderful track by Natacha Atlas, which I learned about courtesy Neil Sparkes of Transglobal Underground. It's from a 2008 album called Big Blue Ball, put together by Peter Gabriel from sessions recorded between 1991 and 1995 at Real World Studies, with the participation of lots of world music artists. Neil Sparkes appears on this track, as does the ubiquitous Hossam Ramzy. I especially like the violin playing that you hear in the opening. Check it out.
