« Belles influences métisses, mais aussi, force, détermination qui sont leurs maîtres mots ! C'est en toute liberté
que ces musiciens se sont mis à exprimer le plus profond de leur âme ! Ils appartiennent dorénavant à
la nouvelle génération de la musique du Maghreb ! On peut dire que leur style a fait évoluer les visions
pessimistes et un peut fatalistes des fusions appauvries par le manque de liberté ou le manque de technicité ou
un peu réducteur au Maroc et un Algérie ! J'ai commencé à vibrer en écoutant ce titre… » - LAST NIGHT IN ORIENT

Pourtant, lorsque Med Fusion délaisse la chanson traditionnelle pour proposer leurs propres compostions
instrumentales, comme dans “Tune’s fusion”, ils sont bien plus intéressants. Entre jouer de la musique pour
plaire au plus grand nombre et jouer de la musique de qualité, nos jeunes musiciens, qui ont la possibilité
d’opter pour le deuxième choix, devront choisir » - BABELMED
