Omar Souleyman - Warni Warni

Omar isn't one to dance to his pumping electronic dabke, but he makes sure everyone else does.
This is a peculiar video on all levels, the 90's green screen effects layered over all sorts of strange scenarios are a particular highlight. But his addictive Syrian dabke belongs to the world, whether walking, flying or... smoking. Produced by Kieran Hebden, 'Wenu Wenu' is a massive yes please right now. Jubilant and unadulterated by Western pop and alternative considerations, its music for living.
