Playlist #4: Funk N’ Disco

Click here for the full playlist on YouTube, or play below

This week we get the party going with some 70’s and 80’s funky tunes and grooves from the Arab world that have recently witnessed a dancefloor revival through crate diggers. These classics are full of slick dance beats, from Fadoul’s Maroccan take on James Brown to Libya’s iconic  pop star Hamido El Shaeri’s tickly synths and jangly guitars in Auynha عيونها.

Turn the volume up and enjoy!
