The co-curated, best-of-2015 #MadaMixTape

Many of us get stuck talking about how we listen to a lot of Arabic contemporary music but have little to show for it. So here’s a playable cheat sheet: a year-end compilation playlist curated by Mada music contributors Rami Abadir, Kinda Hassan and Maha ElNabawi. This 33-song playlist will carry you through music from the MENA region, across genres like neo-folk, rap, electronica, noise, and alt-rock, mostly from 2015.
