Al-Yaman - Saraab
album: Insanyya (2010, Indies Scope)
The Prague band Al-Yaman, inspired by popular and traditional songs from Yemen and the Arabic world, is a fusion of acoustic instruments and electronic beats—a new progressive dance music. Singer Ashwaq Abdulla Kulaib brings a strong Arabic influence into the music. In 1990 she came from Aden, in Yemen, to study in Prague and stayed. Her singing is an emotional expression of traditional spiritual songs or her own experiences of life.
