3 Mustaphas 3

3 Mustaphas 3 were a British World Music band formed in 1982, who split in the early 90's. Core members were Ben Mandelson (under the name Hijaz Mustapha), Tim Fienburgh (1954–2008) (under the name Niaveti III) Colin Bass (under the name Sabah Habas Mustapha), and Nigel Watson (under the name Houzam Mustapha). The band would play different musical styles around the world including those from the Balkans, Africa and the Middle East. In 1985 they surfaced in Berlin as L'Orchestre "Bam" De Grand Mustapha International And Party. (read more on wikipedia ....)

Links To Peel

On the Oxford Road Show in 1983, Peel mentioned that he discovered 3 Mustaphas 3 through City Limits[1] and Collusion[2] . magazines, both published in London. Peel would later on see the band perform and seemed to be won over by their humorous approach to the often solemnly-regarded genre known as world music. He invited them to record a total of seven sessions for his programmes, and their records appeared in his playlists during the 1980s, until they split up in 1991. Four albums by the 3 Mustaphas 3 were found in his Record Collection.
