Omar Souleyman tells a tale of love on new song “Ya Bnayya” — listen

Taken from the Syrian musician's upcoming third LP


    To Syria, With Love is the forthcoming album from Omar Souleymanslated for release June 2nd through Diplo’s Mad Decent label. The follow-up to 2015’s Bahdeni Nami sees the Syrian artist incorporating new “techno elements” into his music with the help of arranger Hasan Alo.

    Our very first listen to the record comes with today’s “Ya Bnayya”, which translates to “girl” in English. Here, over a barrage of titillating percussion, Souleyman recounts the time he fell in love at first sight with a brunette woman.

    In support of To Syria, Souleyman will tour the US next month.
