FEN FIVE – MARCH 2010 //

03.12.10
byFEN

This month’s FEN Five carries some of our favorite qualities of the Arab-American music scene — it’s eclectic, innovative and quinti-lingual. From the moment we heard Algerian-Canadian songstress Zaho’s francofied remix of Sean Paul’s “Hold My Hand” we knew it would get heavy rotation. Gaida’s “Almaya” is one of Seif’s favorites off her album which he’ll be reviewing soon. “Hustle On” is Omar Offendum’s modern ode to an age-old street hustle, and our favorite of the exclusives he sent over off his upcoming album SyrianamericA. “Catch Me”, off Toronto-based singer/songwriter/producer Sarah Shafey’s EP got put back into rotation as we began reviewing her latest album. And for the finale, Syrian-Mexican-American Nuriya mixes Spanish and reggae vibes in “Ya Vete.”
