Song(s) of the Day # 1,251 Bedouine

                                       ''California city parks. They talk in exclamation marks!'

There is such a sea of music, constantly incoming, that it's often difficult to differentiate between individual voices and statements and judge what you want to retain and what you'll just let flow on. This caught my ear yesterday, A couple of songs from a debut album released today. By a Syrian singer, born in Aleppo of all places, who made her way from there to Saudi and then to the States.

Something of a traveller since across its states since, California seems like a natural home. This is very much a Laurel Canyon record in terms of inspiration and feel though Bedouine never forgets for a moment where she's from and the traces of her journey are here in the music. A contemplative and meditative set of songs  you might like to open up to and enjoy.
