Mambo El Soudani is a new dimension in Nubian music. Recorded and mixed in Cairo this original Piranha release features first time ever Nubian Al Jeel Music stars Salamat, formed by Mahmoud Fadl with Hassan Meky and Ahmed El Saidy of Ali Hassan Kubans Nubian Band and Fathi Abou Greisha and Salma Abd Rady on lead vocals.
