Putumayo's Arabic Beat is the result of a three-year effort in curating, deliberating, and choosing material that reflects the vast depth and breadth of modern Arab music. All the artists featured here are well-known throughout the Arab world and its global communities, but are ciphers to the rest of the world -- despite the fact that many of them reside in the West. Highlights include the driving 21st century raks sharki (belly dancing music) of Syrian-born singer Zein Al-Jund's "Ajmal Gharam," Watcha Clan's hypermodern read of Marcel Khalife's "Osfour," and Algerian songwriter DJamel Laroussi's "Kifiach Hilti.,"
