Omar Khorshid: With Love Vols. 1 and 2
When I found this lp in a thrift a few years back amongst a massive collection of belly dancing records, I had absolutely no idea who Omar Khorshid was. In fact, I think I might have left a few of his other records behind that day – a thought which has troubled me greatly ever since. Anyhow, I just though – “foreign guy with 12 string vox and cool jogging suite for 50 cent? OK!” Needles to say this was a good choice, and I’ve been a huge fan of his records ever since. This is a bit later than his “Rhythms from the Orient” lp, and I like it slightly less than that one, but it’s still very, very good.
There is also a Vol. 2 which I thought I’d post here being that it’s pretty much the same…
