FEN FIVE – AUGUST 2010 //

08.24.10
byFEN

Kicking off this month’s FEN FIVE is a voice we don’t know how we managed to miss! Sudanese-American singer Alsarah might be one of our favorite artists to grace these monthly picks. Next up, we have Lowkey and Mai Khalil coming from the UK with a deep and emotional “Cradle of Civilization.” To mix things up, we had to include “Tigy Tigy” – the Arabic-Reggaeton (“Arabton”?) union of Hakim and Don Omar. Followed by a track off Seif Al-Din’s list of 25 songs he can’t live without — “C’est Chaud Ca Brule” by Magic System ft. Cheb Bilal.

Finally, we leave you with a special track from Om Kalthoum. Legend has it that Led Zeppelin sampled this particular song “Aghadan Alkak” or “Will I See You Tomorrow?”
