Omar Souleyman

Omar Souleyman is THE musician from Syria! He is awesome! Had the chance to see him couple years ago in Metropolis festival. I had never before heard syrian music and was mesmerized by the strange rythm and the keyboard effects. Was just great music to dance to! Even though didn't have slightest idea about what the songs were about!

He has done several albums and did also a cover of Björk's song "Crystalline".

It's also great music now when the winter is coming and some people are staying more inside. You need some extra energy pinch and this it it!

Here's some cool videoclips of Souleyman playing at Glastonbury festival.

I must admit that the remix of Crystalline is somehow bizar but at the same time cool.
