UK, 2018, Arabic folk

The TurbansThe Turbans: This isn’t related to the music, but this album has one of those covers I could just stare at for hours. The color, composition, and subject matter are all so lovely. Anyway, about the music—it’s weird to me that there are no Arabs in this collective. We’ve got Turks and Jews and Persians but no Arabs. What gives? Well, there are strong moments of spin-ourselves-around klezmer joy here, too, so maybe the personnel listing isn’t so strange.
