Renowned as the Muslim world's finest female vocalist, Dimi Mint Abba was one of the first musicians to bring Mauritanian music to an international audience. Rarely captured on record, the complex rhythms and expressive singing that characterise the Moorish tradition have been an important influence on flamenco and - as this exceptional recording illustrates - continue to be a powerful medium for both political comment and religious devotion.
