Door to the Souk

Discriminating against commercial and digital music, the album explores both laid back and dancefloor tracks with Brazilian, Cuban and African influenced sounds. This album fuses the Latin dance flavour of Buena Vista Social Clubís Cachaito with credible soulful House by Masters at Work incorporating music past and present. Po Na Naís raison díetre has always been its music, leading the Moroccan inspired bar and club chain to compile two CDís that exemplify the ambience of the Souk bars and Fez clubs, strengthening the brandís core musical reputation. Po Na Na musicís album - Door to the Souk - will capture the vibrancy of the brand with a Ďglobal dance musicí content covering a variety of musical genres, including Latin, jazz, reggae, hip-hop and house. Po Na Na has compiled an album of exceptional musical quality, deviating from current digital and commercial sounding bar and chill-out compilations. The first CD focuses upon retrospective and nostalgic music with tracks on the album that chart the history of Po Na Na, taking listeners back to itís musical origins, while the second encompasses some of todayís coolest house music. The first CD contains tracks by the Buena Vista Social Clubís Cachaito, Bebel Gilberto (whoís mother sang the 60ís classic ĎThe Girl from Ipanemaí), Manu Chao and Barrington Levy. The second CD has tracks by Bob Sinclair, Masters at Work, Kings of Tomorrow and Sonique. A number of tracks will be appearing for the first time on CD, including Naked Musicís artist Petal Pusherís Rely on Me and Faze Actionís remix of Femi Kutiís, Do Your Best.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
