Audio: DJ Zhao's Ngoma 9 Arabic Mix


DJ Zhao delivers this 78-minute (!) mix rooted in North African and Middle Eastern sounds. Radio Ngoma #9 - Eternity takes off from an Algerian and Moroccan Rai starting point and treads through several different times and regions:

"Egyptian darbuka meets Kraftwerk, Palestinian electric oud spiced with Afro drums, Israeli folk music with the moonbah treatment. Also included are some relatively contemporary groups like the unique pan-Arabic electro-dub outfit Checkpoint 303, as well as diasporic sounds like Algerian expat Hiphop made in France." (NS)
