Amazingly good compilation of music from Iraq!

Explosive rapid fire electronic and acoustic percussion combine with bewitching horn and synth melodies to create an intoxicating and irresistable sound in the 'Choubi' style tracks!

Features great examples of 1970s socialist folk rock alongside contemporary Bezikh, rapid-fire Choubi, string-drenched Basta, and more!

This is a beautiful collection of music that you simply need to own and has to be one of the best Sublime Frequencies releases ever!

Very highly recommended!
