artworkThis came out in 2007. It's a collection of tracks from Algerian pop singer Rachid Taha. OK, that's pretty strange for Reverb Central, but there is a surf-dance instro here that's worth checking out.

Jungle Fiction dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Jungle Fiction" starts off with spatial keys and a dark bass line, brings on dance percussion, and then dark surf guitar inspired by "Miserlou," as are some arrangement elements. This is an interesting and adventurous blend of Spanish trumpet, dance rhythms, surf guitar, and exotic ambiance. Pretty amazing!
