Downtown Sound: Omar Souleyman

Music Free
Omar Souleyman

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 produced by Four Tet. Souleyman shreds in the park as part of the city's Downtown Sound series.
