Hi Ahmed:Sorry but you seem to have disinformation from somewhere: Maurice himself says that the choice in 1961-2 for the Jewish community was made very clear: 'la valise ou la tete' - to leave or be killed. Why else would such an ancient community choose to leave everything they had known and loved for so many generations, to go to France? Maurice to this day finds it painful to talk about Algeria and the fact that they had to leave....
I'd like to rectify a factual error in Maurice's biography: the jews were NOT expulsed from Oran, rather they decided to throw their lot in with the French Settlers...maybe you should ask Maurice...some did in fact stay behind...
Nostalgic, unique, a surprising and melodious cultural melange.

This CD makes me feel nostalgic!It's an excellent fusion of two beautiful cultures that really are more like the soul and roots of one. You will love Roberto Rodriguez as well as Maurice el Médioni. When I listen to Maurice, I don't really hear him play the piano, I hear an extension of himself that seems so natural in his smooth as silk style of playing. I feel the passion he has for all styles music and for life itself. This is music that speaks to my heart!
