Omar Souleyman - Wenu Wenu

Videostheneedledrop1 Comment

Syrian musician Omar Souleyman has announced that he has a new album titled Wenu Wenu due out on October 22nd via Ribbon Music. Souleyman made this new LP with the help of his right-hand man, Rizan Sa'id, but unlike previous efforts; it was recorded primarily in the studio. Excitingly, Wenu Wenu boasts production courtesy of Four Tet.

The haphazard editing and visual esthetic of the album's trailer wonderfully represent Souleyman's eccentric, electronically-infused take on Syrian folk music. Enjoy!
