For nearly 20 years, Syrian singer Omar Souleyman has been making a sound best described as Arab New Wave. His work draws from a broad array of influence --  Kurdish, Turkish, Iraqi and more. And, he’s attracted the attention of quite a few Western musicians – from Damon Albarn to Bjork. Check out this song, “Weli Weli."
