Wenu Wenu is the debut "proper" studio album by Syrian dabke musician Omar Souleyman, released in May 2014 via Ribbon Music.

Starting out as a part-time wedding singer in his native al-Hasakah Governorate, Syria, Omar Souleyman made his international debut in 2011 when he appeared at the Glastonbury Festival, and later recorded three remixes for Björk's Biophilia as part of her Crystalline Series that preceeded the release of her album. And in December 2013, he performed at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway. 

Produced by British electronic musician Four Tet and recorded at Brooklyn's Studio G, Wenu Wenu is Omar Souleyman's first "proper" studio album (around five hundred studio and live albums have been released under his name, eighty percent of those releases are recordings made at weddings and presented to the married couple, which are later copied and sold at local kiosks).

Capturing the essence of Syrian pop music,the album uses traditional rhythms and instruments, as well as synthesizers to create the hummingbird-like notes and sparkling percussion to create dance music that easily competes with any current releases. 

Check out the tracks "Warni Warni", "Wenu Wenu", and "Nahy".

This LP record is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and digital download code, pressed in Europe.
