Attarazat Addahabia - Aflana

Habibi Funk is a German label that compiles unheard Arabic funk from the 1970s and '80s. If that sounds like your sort of thing, then try this. I don't know much about Attarazat Addahabia except that he's Moroccan, and his backing singers believe that close harmony shouldn't be too close. Aflana is shrill and raucous and totally nicks the melody from Für Elise. Thankfully it's put to better use than the sort of classical crossovers you got in the west in the 1970s and the band very nearly make the tune their own. From Habibi Funk 007.
