Balfron Promise

47Soul-Balfron Promise.jpg

Now resident in London, the four Middle Eastern musicians who comprise 47SOUL got together in Jordan in 2013. Rapping in Arabic and English and fusing oriental tradition and Western electronica flecked with dub, they’ve named the resulting hip-hop/roots fusion shamstep. Bold, radical and hugely danceable, the album packs a punch, both musically and politically. A Top of the World in #135.
