Omar Souleyman

Grande Halle de la Villette,
Saturday 2nd November 2013

At last, one of the greatest outsiders of the electronic music scene is coming to Paris. Omar Souleyman, the musician and producer for Syrian artist Ra’s Al-‘Ayn, is almost 50 and still fascinates his peers worldwide. He has close to 500 releases to his name, most of them recorded at marriages as a gift to the bride and groom, before being copied and distributed locally. After a brief and still unpublished collaboration with Damon Albarn and some amazing remixes of Björk’s latest album, Souleyman is releasing an album produced by none other than Four Tet, a record that promises to reach a world wide audience.
