"Inspired by the purchase of a Lebanese Casio that played microtonal scales and Arabic beats, Rainbow Arabia's propulsive first effort The Basta EP showed a lot of promise blending bossa nova, electro-pop, goth/post-punk, and Middle Eastern music."
Think of early M.I.A. meets Out Hud, mixed with a little Marjoram. The band was cool enough to post an entire remix album on their blog. Click here for the free album
