Various Artists -- Choubi Choubi! Folk and Pop Sounds from Iraq
The peripatetic genii at Sublime Frequencies have made a habit (and record label) out of digging up exotic sounds from faraway lands. This gem from 2005 is a collection of Iraqi folk and pop music, in some cases from artists whose identity is unknown. If you've ever found yourself tapping your foot while waiting in line at a falafel stand, you should probably check this out now. Then go buy this and everything else in the SF catalog.
