Omar Souleyman “Jazeera Nights: Folk and Pop Sounds of Syria” (2010)

August 8, 2011

Jazeera Nights is Omar Souleyman’s most recent compilation prepared for the Western audience. The beat goes as crazy and there’s hardly a time to take a breath. While Dabke 2020 was more diverse, it’s still better to listen to Omar than an average radio station with its sickly tunes.

hydrameter: 3/5

Key Tracks: Hot Il Khanjar Bi Gleibi (Stab My Heart), Labji Wa Bajji Il Hajar (My Tears Will Make the Stones Cry)
