Jewish Morocco's Chris Silver is in Algeria. He prepared this terrific guest mixtape for Afropop Worldwide. Please listen: you will immediately be sucked in by the amazing vocalizing of Salim Halali on the first track, "Layali Maghrabi." Beautiful.

And Silver's longer discussion, plus the track listing, at Jewish Morocco.
