Oddisee x Maryam Saleh – Nouh Al Hamam

blame it on JES7 January 6, 2014

Now this is dope as hell, despite me not understanding a thing. As soon as that track opens for the first time, it sent chills down my spine. Enough about my feelings though…

While out in Tunisia, Jakarta Records put together a recording session which included nine female musicians from Tunisia, Libya, Syria & Egypt along with Oddisee (who is of Sudanese ancestry) and Olof Dreijer of The Knife. With the current civil war brewing in Syria -which all stems from the larger, Arab Spring that was set off in 2010- it’s nice to see all these different musicians from their respective countries come together to make amazing music.
