Desert Rose – Sting, Cheb Mami

I love when songs I am not familiar with enthrall my being. I have discovered that feeling in the song, “Desert Rose” from Sting‘s 1999 album Brand New DayI don’t know why this song eluded my understanding 16 years ago but thankfully I can appreciate it now 🙂

“Desert Rose” is a duet featuring the voices of Sting and Algerian rai singer Cheb Mami. It has a transcendent world music feel that I find rapturous compelling.
