We can only apologise profusely for that headline, as Omar Souleyman prepares to release his first proper studio album through Ribbon Music.
Produced by Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Wenu Wenu combines aspects of Middle Eastern dabke dance music and traditional songs with his own contemporary style. Often described as “Syrian techno”, Souleyman records and performs live with long-time collaborator Rizan Sa’id.
As evidenced on the single, Souleyman’s high speed, high energy brand of electronica spears it’s way through traditional folk in a thrillingly unique and fascinating way. We dare you not to dance.

Omar Souleyman will be playing the following UK dates:
9th November: GLASGOW, The Arches
10th November: LONDON, LEAF, The Laundry
