8 Days to Bonnaroo: Omar Souleyman

Omar Souleyman is the fucking man! The word “man” is in his name, that’s how much of the man he is. Enjoy.

Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Check out the Cinema tent. It has air conditioning and some awesome flicks!

This is why I do this shit!  Chances are you’ve never heard of this glorious human being, because I myself was blindly unaware of his existence. Omar Souleyman is a 48-year-old Syrian musician, who performs traditional Middle Eastern songs in Kurdish and Arabic. Souleyman has been recording music since 2006, but his first studio album Wenu Wenu came out last year. With so much remarkable talent at Bonnaroo, an artist like Souleyman may be overshadowed, but that would be a tragedy. His music is so fun; you feel like you’re experiencing a different culture, but the music has a familiar electronic groove to it. Watch that fucking video! Whoops. Your brain exploded.
