We’ve been asking the BAMM.tv team what their musical highlights of 2013. Today it’s the turn of Fatima El Filali, whose wonderfully eclectic choices can be found below …
1. Mashrou’ Leila
The hipster band of Lebanon (as my friend calls them)!
Raasuk (below) literally means “they made you dance”. It is safe to say that this is a track from a very political album. I think the whole album plays around the idea of the rulers making the people dance, which makes it conceptual too. The video for the single is also playing with the same idea, the title literally means: for the nation.
Below is one of my faves from their previous album, and also a fave from their first album.
