Review:A stylish combination of global dance music. Capturing the exoticism of North Africa, Cuba and Brazil, Door to the Souk spans a variety of genres from global dance to jazz, Latin, reggae, hip-hop and house, providing an antidote to digitally produced bar and chill-out albums. This is the definitive compilation album, with an exceptional selection of music inspired by the vibrancy and ambience of Po Na Naís Souk bars, Fez clubs and other dance venues. Let Po Na Naís intelligent collection transport you with an exotic blend of Brazilian, African and Cuban flavours, taking you higher with a searing collection of percussive and vocal tunes. Synonymous with the ultimate in fun times throughout their 60 bedouin style bars and clubs, Po Na Naís album consists of two CDís. The first is a retrospective and nostalgic journey back to the origins of Po Na Na, set against a backdrop of contemporary musical sounds including tracks by Buena Vista Social Clubís Cachaito, Bebel Gilberto, Manu Chao and Barrington Levy. The second CD pushes you to the dancefloor with the coolest house tracks by Bob Sinclair, Masters at Work, Kings of Tomorrow, Sonique and other funky dancefloor beats. There are also a number of tracks appearing on CD for the first time, including Naked Musicís artist, Petal Pusherís Rely on Me and Faze Actionís remix of Femi Kutiís Do Your Best.
