    From wedding singer to international sensation: Syria’s Omar Souleyman has been captivating the world for the past decade. He mixes Arabian ‘dabke’ and baladi with electronics and party music. His latest record, ‘To Syria, With Love’ is something of a departure from his earlier work. Without talking politics, Omar sings about wanting peace for everyone, alongside his more usual subject of heartache. ‘To Syria, With Love’ was released on Diplo’s Mad Decent label. Omar might seem an odd fit between Major Lazer and Baauer, but his music will make you dance just the same. The groovy beats and Omar’s beautiful, emotional vocals make this a must-see!
