Omar and Razid return to Australia with "the brash outcast voice from the street, improvisatory and soulful; delights in the play between tumult and rhythm, coolness and fervour..."

Universes converge as the streets of Syria surge through your feet in a compulsive hyper-mesh that will leave you reeling in a vortex. MAR SOULEYMAN is a Syrian musical legend. Since 1994, he and his musicians have emerged as a staple of folk-pop throughout Syria, but until now they have remained little known outside of the country. To date, he has issued more than five-hundred studio and live-recorded cassette albums which are easily spotted in the shops of any Syrian city. From rural Northeastern Syria, Omar began his musical career in 1994 with a small group of local collaborators that remain with him today. The myriad musical traditions of the region are evident in their music. Here, classical Arabic mawal-style vocalization gives way to high-octane Syrian Dabke (the regional folkloric dance and party music), Iraqi Choubi and a host of Arabic, Kurdish and Turkish styles, among others. Together, they commonly perform the Ataba, a traditional form of folk poetry used in Dabke. Souleyman’s first hit in Syria was "Jani" (1996) which gained cassette-kiosk infamy and brought him recognition throughout the country. Over the years, his popularity has risen steadily and the group tirelessly performs concerts throughout Syria and abroad. Most notably Omar Souleyman has performed at Bonnaroo Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival, Hollywood Bowl, Summer Stage in New York, ATP Festivals, Bestival and Glastonburry Festival in the UK, SONAR in Spain, WOMADelaide, Perth International Festival and virtually every major and small city in the United States, Canada, UK, Europe and Australia. Along with Matthew Herbert and Serban Ghenea, Omar Souleyman contributes three remixes to Bjork's 2011 ' The Crystalline Series'.
