Synthesized Oud Beats

One of the best presenters of hip, global music in Michigan is MOCAD, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. This is Omar Souleyman...a Syrian musician who fuses traditional Middle Eastern jams with electronic beats. It's bizarre and awesome. And he's worked with Bjork!! It was a super hot summer night and this was an outdoors show. Omar didn't go on until well past midnight. I have to say...there's nothing more beautiful than 200 Detroit hipsters waiting for that synthesized oud beat to drop.
