Artist: Tina Yamout
Lebanese recording artist Tina Yamout treats our October to ''Raqisni", a tune that has racked up over 200 thousand youtube views in just under two weeks and is a bonafide hit in the making.
Raqisni presents a fresh perspective on the "Arab-Pop" sound and its Moorish hook grows on you the more you hear it. The darbuka driven breakdown towards the end definitely gets your groove going and as the title suggests* - the track commands a few moves on the dancefloor.
*Raqisni translation: Make me dance
