This inventive duo of brothers from the Golan Heights Hasan and Rami Nakhleh - return with an infectious re-imagining of their sound. Jammed full of pop hooks and quarter-tone synth lines, "Migrant Birds" unleashes a disco whirlwind that pays homage to the Middle Eastern dancefloor scenes of the 80's. Retro funky meets hi-sheen contemporary. The 80s may be the catalyst, with the glittering, hedonistic party vibe. But the real roots of the music here run deeper, to musicians like keyboardist Magdi al-Husseini and Ihsan Al-Munzer, who were the first to introduce synthesizers to the Arabic classical style, or Omar Khorshid, who pioneered the addition of electric guitar and worked with the legendary Umm Kulthum.
