Salem Al Fakir - Swedens best kept secret

...and a new voice in soul..The Swedish-Syrian multi-instrumentalist /writer/producer don laid down his debut This is Who I Am on the DIY in his basement and bedroom all on his jacksie (with a little help brother Sami on horns)..loving his quirky fresh lushness here on Dreamgirl


  1. haha. .

    i remember hearing of this chap when i was listening to pete tong one summertime friday evening.

    on an axwell 'club smash'

    sounded good then to be fair.

    will check this out once I'm in a suitable environment.

  2. He is a fantastically talented and diverse artist who can produce anything from soul to jazz to dance to classical and he makes it all sound wonderful. His new album is due for release in Sweden in 2009.

    Of course I'm biased - I've got a fansite for him called Planet Salem. (Quick plug here: http://planetsalem.blogspot.com)
