Jannis of Jakarta Records – Habibi Funk 003 Mix (Mix of Arabic 60s & 70s vinyl)

Jun 23 2015

Jannis of Jakarta Records brings us another mix of Arabic music gems (the third mix in his series) and it’s perfect for getting you ready for summer vacation.

“Earlier this month I was in North Africa for another digging trip and ended up finding quite some records I didn’t know before or I had no copy of so I felt it was time for another mix. After every mix I make I feel like „Uhh, getting enough records I like for the next one will be tough“. But every time I end up getting proven wrong by the rich musical heritage of Arabic musicians that worked on combining local influences with western musical traditions. Just like Dalton, the Tunisian band we just re-released on our new Habibi Funk label, who are also prominently featured on this mix.

For now please enjoy the new mix featuring music from Sudan, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon.”
