MORE INFO

First time on vinyl. Limited edition vinyl LP in a heavy tip-on jacket. The classic party sound of the Jazeera region in Northeast Syria. A magic combination of Syrian Dabke, Iraqi Choubi, and Turkish and Kurdish rhythms. Compiled from Omar Souleyman's super-rare cassettes by Mark Gergis. "Jazeera Nights: Folk and Pop Sounds of Syria is probably the most dynamic collection of Omar Souleyman's work that Sublime Frequencies has yet released." --Pitchfork (7.8)
