Do you guys ever listen to Arabic music?

I was first exposed to it through a website that streams radio stations from other countries. I browsed through random stations, and came upon one that was playing Arabic music.

I'm not Arab myself, but I like Arabic music because it has this weird hypnotic feel that draws you in. It becomes so addicting.

Do you guys like Arabic music as well?

I'm Arab but I don't like it much There are a few that I like though, like some stuff by Fadi Andraos and some old stuff by Amir Diab.
You know a song is Arabic when there's what sounds like 1,000 people in the chorus, hahaha.

well the musician isn't Arab or of Middle Eastern descent (its the dude behind the vocals of Daft Punk's One More Time) but it samples a Arabic hymn

well OK there is this Syrian wedding singer named Omar Souleyman who does this mix of electronic music with Syrian folk music that is pretty catchy

I'd at least give it a try before I'd simply out and say, "No I don't like it."
