It's Sting's version of Led Zeppelin'sKa s h m i r ! Cheb Mami sounds otherworldly on this track, it's exhilarating . Also, this song made me buy Frank Herbert's widely lauded science fiction novel, Dune simply because Sting is a fan of the book (and series), and the book partly inspired this song.

In a way, this reminds me of "in you eyes" with Peter Gabriel & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. I have 6 or 6 Ali Khan Cds.

I laughed like he'll when they did this song as a skit on SNL... but then I saw the video and I was a changed man. Sting is a genius on so many levels

I decided to Google Cheb Mami and was distrubed by what I found out about him: "Cheb Mami, an Algerian singer, has been sentenced by a French court to five years in prison for abducting his former girlfriend and attempting to force her to have an abortion."
