Habibi funk: Listen to this rare vinyl mix of incredible Arab songs from the 60s/70s

"'I got to travel a lot in North Africa in the last years through touring with Blitz the Ambassador,' Jannis writes on his Soundcloud page, and the studio session with Oddisee for Sawtuha in Tunisia. While being there, I did some digging and found some incredible music from the ’60s and ’70s. Some of the music in this mix has zero info on the Net, was never sold on eBay, and has not been ‘rediscovered’ yet. Others are somewhat classics in the field of ‘Arabic groove.’ The music in this mix comes from Morocco, Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon, and Syria.”
