Levantine Funk... Afro psych... Egyptian grime... Disco hi-life... Two hours of party music from the Middle East and Africa

Doran played Turkish funk, Lebanese disco, Iranian psych, chaabi, choubi, dabke, rai, Afrobeat, Ethio jazz, Zam rock and other forms of hybridized party music while wittering on.
