There seems to be a growing appetite for dusty old Middle Eastern records and I’m a huge fan of the same too and for giving it greater exposure but I just hope things stay ethical. If people are releasing this stuff on vinyl and/or digital, I hope they do it by acquiring full rights & permissions and by giving credits OR if not, then they ought to give it away for free, as they acquired it for free or at the very least donate all/any proceeds for charitable causes. Otherwise, it is what it is, THEFT!

Having said that, here’s a good mix of trad 60’s/70’s sounding Psychedelic belly dance music and the bonus is that it’s an all vinyl affair too by the dudes at Fortuna Records who specialize in re-issues of forgotten music from the Middle East.  By the looks of it, they seem to be doing things the right way with their label releases, I hope that is the case.

Anyways, this is a mix and it’s all free and it’s pretty dope.
