A song to start your week : Aris San – Dam Dam

This week’s song to start your week comes from Greece via 1970s Israel. Not for any topical reasons, I hasten to add, just because it’s a great record, which I discovered on a Fortuna Records mix of middle-eastern music.

This one always cheers me up (which I need today on my first day back in work after a week off). I occasionally find myself lamenting that I rarely find music unlike anything I’ve ever heard before, but when I hear this it reminds me there is a whole world of music out there I know nothing about. 90% of my record collection is from Western Europe and North America, and I have only really dipped my toes into pre-punk era music so I have plenty more to discover.
