From the first note, I knew this was a winner. Kuban immediately brings to mind Abdel Aziz el-Mubarak - the tones and melodies are very similar, but Kuban has sped up the Nubian traditional rhythms and given them a raucous party feel anchored by a perfect electric bass. He has also incorporated James Brown's "jerk" dance into the beat in a way that's hard to notice it's so seamless. The instruments are tar, winds, accordion and percussion. If your friends won't dance to this, get new friends.
