Item ID: 492912

This inventive duo of brothers from the Golan Heights - Hasan and Rami Nakhleh - return with an infectious re-imagining of their sound. Jammed full of pop hooks and quarter-tone synth lines, 'Migrant Birds' unleashes a disco whirlwind that pays homage to the Middle Eastern dancefloor scenes of the '80s. Retro funky meets hi-sheen contemporary. The '80s may be the catalyst, with the glittering, hedonistic party vibe. But the real roots of the music here run deeper, to musicians like keyboardist Magdi al-Husseini and Ihsan Al-Munzer, who were the first to introduce synthesizers to the Arabic classical style, or Omar Khorshid, who pioneered the addition of electric guitar and worked with the legendary Umm Kulthum.

Also available: MIGRANT BIRDS (LP).
