Last summer I went pretty nuts over Fakroun and his incredible jams, then as always happens to me, my attention shifted elsewhere…

But now I’m back on him and I’ve been cruising his online store. “Awedni” is the cream of the fistful I just picked up. That flute or pan flute he breaks out in the chorus is too good.

Ahmed Fakroun is simply a pioneer of modern Arabic World Music.
He recently released a remix called Drago, a collaboration with Mudd (Paul Murphy) produced by Claremont 56.

I heard a sample of the Drago remix, I wasn’t loving it but some of his more recent-sounding stuff is pretty good.

The man’s work is incredible…
