FEN FIVE – APRIL 2010 //

04.16.10
byFEN

It’s officially Spring and the Arab-American music scene is in full bloom. This month’s FEN Five features some new faces and fresh sounds from all over North America. First up, Ayah — reppin’ Toronto, her soulful voice delights on this track produced by DJ Jazzy Jeff. Philly-raised, NYU student Sherif Hamid of Fortune Family sent us a track off their new hip-hop album. Indiana-based Salaam will take you back home with their song “Layla.” Music Without Borders puts a refreshing and innovative twist on Fadel Shaker’s “Allahu Aalam.” And finally, the Brooklyn-Based Balkan Beat Box gives us a lighter take on “Ramallah Tel Aviv.” You’ll have to listen to understand what we mean by that. Now, press play and let us know what you think below…
