Débruit & Alsarah: Alkoan Baladi

From nomadic tunes for the modern world to a comedic #PrivateJam by Vampire Weekend drummer Chris Tomson; the music we tweeted this week

Find a yurt and put on your dancing shoes because “Alkoan Baladi” inspires having both. While the collaborative tune is decidedly Arabic, it’s the work of French artist Débruit and the Sudan-born, Yemen-raised and Brooklyn-based singer Alsarah. The duo—whose new album Aljawal is due out this November but is now available for pre-order from Soundway Records—explains their music is actually a “child of our global experience” and a “nomadic reflection for the 21st century.” Keep an eye out as they continue their travels on tour this fall.
