This is "Sellem:" The Egyptian classic "Sellem Alay" remade by Out Of Nations for a new era: from Dirshabah to Cairo to Beirut & Berlin, “Sellem” features the voice of underground Egyptian singer-songwriter Dina Elwedidi.

We wanted to create a tribute to the rural folk music that reflected life in the Egyptian countryside and decided to update a song so dated, no one knows when it was first sung. It’s a deeply traditional tune filled with raw energy and known by every Egyptian as well as audiences outside the nation, and we're excited to share our version with you.
