SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "GAMIL" - Y.A.S. /// "SAMAR" - Yasmine Hamdan

 The ethereal "Gamil" comes from "Arabology" my album of the year in 2009 which blossomed as a unique multi-cultural collaboration between Lebanese chanteuse Yasmine Hamdan (of Soapkills fame) and Paris based producer Mirwais Ahmadzaï (responsible for Madonna's "Music" album). This marriage of Oriental sounds and electronica all sung in Arabic (the most exquisite of all languages in my humble opinion) was an absolute sonic feast and couldn't possibly be any more "my cup of tea". Yasmine Hamdan continues her colourful career with her latest elaborate self-titled solo album which the enigmatic "Samar" is the third single from. The video for the song is a piece of art of its own league. Magnificent!
