Though a firm favourite of more leftfield festivals and audiences, Omar Souleyman (not to be confused with Detroit legend Omar S) is really as accessible as hummus. The Syrian singer never fails to galvanise a crowd, channelling Middle Eastern music through a techno-informed prism, and is helped out as always by his master keyboardist Rizan Said by his side. His new album's being produced by Four Tet – the busiest electronic musician in London – so we might be in for a collaboration tonight as Souleyman plays London for the first time in two years for the London Electronic Arts Festival.
