Omar Souleyman

The darling of devotees of avant-garde world music- and of Björk as well-Souleyman is a genuine star in his native Syria, not to mention the entire Middle East. After enflaming fans' ghetto blasters there since 1994 (with over 500 recordings to his credit), he's now winning over Western audiences with his hyper-danceable, an electro/folk-pop blend of Dabka and Choubi with traditional Mawwal vocals. You haven't heard anything like this since the Algerian raï wave-absolutely captivating!
