  Stereophile: Recording of October 1998: Orchestre National de Barbès
Already a sensation in Europe, the Orchestre National de Barbès' self-titled debut album has US world-music fans pricking up their ears to the unaccustomed beat of North Africa.
In Barbès, a Parsian neighborhood heavily populated by immigrants from the Maghreb region of Northwest Africa, Algerian rai mingles with Moroccan chaabi and Gnawa music, Sufi devotional songs, sub-Saharan Afro-pop and all manner of Western sounds, from dancehall reggae to heavy metal.
The performances on Orchestre National de Barbès (originally released by Virgin France) are so tight and clean, you'd never guess the album was recorded live if not for the audience cheers between tracks.

 The New York Times > Barbes Restaurant Review > New York City Restaurant Reviews
He opened Barbès early last year with Omar Balouma, who is Algerian and operates a Moroccan party-planning business called Omar the Tent Man. That name suggests a tendency toward shtick that, blessedly, doesn't get a thorough workout at Barbès.
Barbès could otherwise be mistaken for any old bistro, and some of its food has the straightforward appeal of bistro fare.
Both that skewer of grilled lamb and a skewer of grilled chicken boasted tender meat redolent of the vegetables, herbs and spices in which it had been marinated: red onions, shallots, cumin and saffron for the lamb; saffron, powdered ginger and coriander seed for the chicken.
