Oddisee x Maryam Saleh ~ Nouh Al Hamam

While out in Tunisia, Jakarta Records put together a recording session which included nine female musicians from Tunisia, Libya, Syria & Egypt along with Oddisee (who is of Sudanese ancestry) and Olof Dreijer of The Knife. With the current civil war brewing in Syria -which all stems from the larger, Arab Spring that was set off in 2010- it's nice to see all these different musicians from their respective countries come together to make amazing music.
