Ahmed Fakroun feat. Altin GünThursday
Libya’s Ahmed Fakroun is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and pioneer in modern Arabic music. As a rhymist (based on a form of Algerian folk music dating back to the 1920s), he is one of the most forward-thinking and gifted individuals. Fakroun's 1983 album Mots d'Amour is a landmark album that combines funk, folk, synth and psych pop with more traditional Arabic sounds, which got him praise from David Byrne and Bat For Lashes and granted him a cult status amongst crate diggers. Fakroun will perform with Dutch-Turkish Altın Gün.
