CNN reports on Kareem Salama who is bringing country music to the Arab world and incorporating Arabic poetry and language into a distinctly American music form to create something one might label “country and eastern”. Intriguing, but personally, I think Russian band Kukuruza does the eastern/western blend thing in more convincing fashion.
