info 

Rough-hewn and exhilarating, EL Khat's second album "Aalbat Alawi Op.99" is a deep dive into leader Eyal el Wahab's Yemenite roots and their inspired re-imaginings. A careening orchestra of percussion, horns, strings, electricity and el Wahab's own DIY instruments. Mesmerizing retro-futurist sounds. El Khat, named after the drug used so widely chewed across the Middle East, the bandband's music is certainly addictive, more so with each outing. This album is a disc full of joys, where the melodies unfold one after the other, involving and catchy. El Wahab plays many of the instruments on the album, things like the dli and the kearat that he constructed himself. A skilled carpenter ititís something he started doing several years ago, using his skills to make music from the items people discard.
