|Street Musician in Beirut by Norient|
This week on Free Lab Radio, we sample a limited vinyl record, full of noises from the Arab World.
These include propaganda music by political groups and clans, psychedelic Arabic Rock from the late 1960s and 1970s, the noises of bombs and machine guns, the now ubiquitous synthesized Electro-Sha’bi from Cairo, old and rare shellac recordings, Death Metal, Rap, Electro-Acoustic Music, and Musique Concrète.
Collected and mixed by the Norient collective. The release comes via Discrepant in London. Previous broadcasts by us of Norient include Art Dubai 2013, for the radio commission Falgoosh Radio at Art Dubai.
Broadcasts Saturday 25th 11-midnight, repeats the following Thursday 2am GMT.
