When I moved to DC after college I knew just one person. That dude had a roommate who became my second friend in DC, Dan. He went to Egypt for work and came back with some tapes. This is one of them.
We often used to eat at this incredible restaurant near their apartment called El Khartoum (a Sudanese spot I presume). The music they played in there sounded roughly like this.
Scariest album cover I’ve ever seen + dramatic, meslimatic female vocals + sweeping violins = totally sweet.
Many thanks to Dan Haab for this one….
