Sounds of Al-Mashriq by Coleman

This month’s FEN Five is a takeover of sorts. We were so intrigued by this mix (that includes way more than just five tracks) that we had to run with it. Artist extraordinaire and Mochilla‘s unofficial Middle East representative, Laith Majali first put us on to Coleman’s “Sounds of Al-Mashriq” a few weeks ago. An adventurous blend of all sounds and styles Middle Eastern, it’s one of the more eclectic compilations of the region’s music we’ve heard. It spans old and new and crosses many genres —  you’ll hear everything from jazz to dabkeh to hip-hop. Press play, and let us know what you think…

Oh, and this is what Mochilla had to say:

This past summer, Coleman and myself, along with Jay Electronica and his DJ, TJ the King, Ommar Offendum, and Will Quantic had the chance to go to the Middle East and play.  We even made it to Egypt and linked with Kutmah there, but that’s a whole other story… This mix represents some of what we learnt. It’s a group effort, but Coleman made the whole thing seem magically coherent…
