Oriental Rare Groove – Rare Funky Songs From The Arabic World
Ana Delliai's psych grooves, Omar Korshid's Arabesque re-imagining of Pop Corn - Oriental Raregrooves represents a fascinating aural excavation of middle Eastern music from the late 60s through to the late 70s.
A lost world lost now, as poticial and cultural circumstances make the fluid transmission of musical ideas between the West and Arabia much more problematic.
