Omar Souleyman announces release date for new project ‘Bahdeni Nami’.

Today Syrian wave don Omar Souleyman announced upcoming album Bahdeni Nami, alongside the release of first single from the project “Enssa El Aatab”. The new album will be Omar’s second studio-produced release, and will be released via German label Monkey Town Records, whom Omar signed to recently. The album will feature production from established producers Four TetGilles Peterson and Modeselektor (who produced the track that was dropped today). We saw Souleyman perform back at the Barbican Just Jam event back in December. Energy levels at the show were through the roof and we’ve been keen fans ever since. On top of today’s announcement comes the information that Omar will also be conducting a world tour, of which you can find the dates below (surprisingly no London dates tho!):
