Haqiba czyli miks saharyjskich i arabskich tradycji podanych w zwiewnej, nieomalże surf-rockowej formule. Nazwa LP to rzeczywisty tytuł zdobyty przez Ahmeda, prywatnie fana Mulatu Astatke z Omdurmanu.
For their latest essential primer on Sudanese music, Habibi Funk has chosen to focus on singer Sharharbil Ahmed, an artist whose desire to update Haqiba, a popular secular style of vocal-driven music, made him a pivotal figure in the 1960s. In his home country, Sharharbil became known as the "king of Sudanese jazz", a distinctive style that melded local instrumentation and vocals with jazz horns and heavy, guitar-driven grooves that drew much inspiration from rock and roll, surf-rock and rhythm and blues. The compilation does a great job in showcasing this insatiable, effervescent sound, showcasing the very best of Sharharbil's golden period output, most of which has never before been released outside of Sudan.
