Omar Souleyman Dabke 2020
Jacking synths and electrified bouzouk, from the last decade, the north-east of Syria: 'one of a kind Dabke party tunes, regional Atabat-styled crooners, and unbelievable Iraqi party jams.'



Open Strings Early Virtuoso Recordings From The Middle East, And New Responses
Forgotten masterpieces, out-of-this-world improvisations from the 1920s; and dazzling commissions by Sir Richard Bishop, Six Organs Of Admittance and co. 'Dextrous, frenzied, fearless... awesome' (Plan B).



Baris Manco Dunden Bugune
His LP debut from 1971, collecting singles and other stuff from the previous few years. Landmark Turkish psych rock, including classics like Derule and Daglar, and the brutal sample-prone wah wah of Kucuk.



Edip Akbayram Edip Akbayram
'The best psych from his first two albums and many singles... full of fuzz guitar, electric sax and great percussion. His dark voice makes you shiver and you feel like dancing right away.'



Zadik Zecharia Kurdish Melodies On Zorna
'Zadik Zecharia's zorna playing is a powerful relentless blast of beauty. The drone-like qualities that engulf both the listener and player are unyielding in their intensity from start to finish.'





Turkey The Baglama Of The Yayla
Utterly beautiful contemporary recordings.





Imane Homsy Seigneur Kanoun
The kanoun has 72-78 strings, in threes across a sound box made of wood and fish skin, played with picks by both hands. These are refreshing new recordings in modern and trad styles, Arab and European.



Shbahoth Iraqi-Jewish Song From The 1920s
Sides by the singers Hagguli Shmuel Darzi, Selim Daoud, Yishaq Maroudy and Shlomo Mouallim; and two by an 'Israelite Choir'.



Ostad Elahi Destinations
Out-of-this-world tanbur-lute playing, recorded in Tehran at the start of the 1970s (with one track, Tarz, from the 1950s).



Give Me Love Songs Of The Brokenhearted, Baghdad, 1925-1929
'Beautiful, haunting... spiritual reflection is sung with carnal force, songs of romance are rendered like hymns. For a few moments, on these ancient records, Baghdad sounds like paradise' (Rolling Stone).



John Berberian Expressions East
Early-sixties grooving out in the Arabic styles of the Middle East, Berberian's oud leading a small group including clarinet, qanun and percussion.
Heavy vinyl.
