Various Artists – Fuegos del Medio Oriente
It was pretty tricky trying to figure out what this album is exactly. If I’m not mistaken, this is a radio program from Argentina, and this is the playlist of a broadcast dedicated to music from the middle east. It features artists from Algeria, Israel (one song by Orphand Land, a band that gained popularity in the Arab world), Palestine, Iran and Syria. The main genres here are hip-hop and rock, and there is something touching in seeing all these artists from different countries in troubled area come together in this playlist. I guess music does bring people together.
