El Khat (القات) – Aalbat Alawi Op.99 (Glitterbeat, LP/CD/digital)

The debut album of the El Khat (القات) project was already a small sensation: »Saadia Jefferson – سعديا جيفيرسون« offered exciting new interpretations of Yemeni music. »Aalbat Alawi Op.99« picks up there, but takes an even more experimental approach in composition and production. Past and future merge on an album that is very present in more ways than one.
