Alone at My Wedding

Thursday, August 14, 2014

This New Sounds is all about party music from the Balkans, Near East, and Central Asia.  From the frantic and sweaty pop that provides the soundtrack for celebrations in Egypt, to Punjabi wedding music, it’s all here.  Listen to music from the Albanian horn band Fanfara Tirana, along with a Bjork tune arranged by Syrian pop legend Omar Souleyman.  Then there’s music from Egyptian DJs of the Cairo Liberation Front, and music from Brooklyn-based Punjabi sweaty-making party band, Red Baraat.  Plus, listen to the highly danceable Syrian electronic dabke music, also heard at weddings and parties.  And more.
