Previously, Omar Souleyman enlisted the help of producer Four Tet for his 2013 album, Wenu Wenu. For the forthcoming follow-up, Bahdeni Nami, the Syrian musician’s taken the same route.
The two artists join forces on the LP’s title track, a lively song about a rapturous relationship. “You dazzled me and I am so much in love with you,” Souleyman can be heard doting. Listen in below; its corresponding video sees him traveling between cities in southeastern Turkey.
Bahdeni Nami is slated to drop on July 28th via Modeselektor’s own Monkeytown label. For more, check out “Enssa El Aatab”.
