about

The mighty Palestinian electronic music duet ZENOBIA زنّوبيا drops a new track, ”Sobo El Gahwa”, a cover of a Jordanian hit from the ‘60s.

Always exploring and revisiting the folk roots of the Levant region, Zenobia are particularly interested in the music of the Bedouins, whose culture and worldview is reflected in their songs.

“Sobo El Gahwa” talks about the Bedouin’s welcoming tradition, symbolized by ceremoniously prepared coffee, which is offered to brave riders and desert travelers as they reach the encampment and are invited into the tents.

Zenobia’s version of the song features vocalist Faten Shafeq Kabaha, the daughter of iconic, late Palestinian singer Shafeq Kabaha .

ZENOBIA زنّوبيا ”Sobo El Gahwa” out on digital October 23rd, on Acid Arab Records/Crammed Discs
