Souleyman, Omar – “Haflat Gharbia – The Western Concerts” – [Sublime Frequencies]

Switch this on and transport yourself to a smoky, overheated club in a far corner of Syria. Omar Souleyman hails from Northeast Syria and started off his career?? performing his unique electronic folk-dance music at simple weddings and other?? gatherings. With the help of the Sublime Frequencies label he has become an international staple of Middle Eastern music. This particular album is a collection of tracks from his tour of US, Europe and Australia from 2009-2011. The music here sounds very low-tech and authentic, with a mix of Korg produced harmonies and beats and electric saz improvisations along with Arabic and Kurdish vocals. Put on your keffiyeh and boogie!
