Omar Souleyman is a legendary performer whose energetic music not only enriches weddings throughout the Middle East. He enjoys just as much popularity among listeners of electronic music who appreciate his street music sound that draws on shaabi music styles. His repetitive, hypnotic tracks are sometimes assigned the label “Syrian techno”. Internationally renowned greats such as Four Tet and Modeselektor collaborated on his album Bahdeni Nami, which was released last year. In the past, Omar Souleyman was forced to flee Syria. Since then he has devoted his time to people who also have to leave their countries due to war.
