Omar Souleyman (SYR)
7:30pm, Wed 5th December, 2012
The Hi-Fi - Melbourne, VIC
+guests. Blistering keyboard maelstroms whip sands of sound sweetly around your ears in this frenetic street-crazed Syrian dabke as Omar stands astride majestic as a tree of poetry resplendent in red keffiyeh and Aviators.
After tours in the US with the likes of Dengue Fever, Ratatat, Hot Chip, Passion Pit... and collaborating with Bjork.
Omar and Razid return to Australia with "the brash outcast voice from the street, improvisatory and soulful; delights in the play between tumult and rhythm, coolness and fervour..."
As well as the MEREDITH MUSIC FESTIVAL... Omar will be performing at The Hi-Fi, Melbourne.
