All work and no play ... Yalla!!!

Yalla!A welcome break from the stresses of moving came on Sunday evening with our annual pilgrimage to listen to one of the greatest voices in the world, Khaled. I bought his first album released in the UK, Hada Raykoum, in 1985 and have been a devotee ever since. Now aged 45, Khaled's voice is better than ever, and he enjoys showing off his skills. Searing emotion or dirty grooving, impeccable timing and a band that swings as tight as the JBs at their best.

Shukran, Khaled!
