Brothers of Balladi’s “Just Do What Is Right.”
Brothers of the Balladi's (BOB) is a 30 yr old band from Oregon. They started as a group accompanying belly dancers in Arizona before moving to Oregon. The group plays mixes of Arabic sounds with Western sounds and the result is a potent mix. You can hear Middle Eastern instruments like oud, saz, kanoon, def and riq and of course the signature Arabic percussion sound that is present in every track.
Three of the songs in the album are the group's interpretation of well known songs. They are: Buffalo Springfield’s “For What it's Worth”, Neil Young’s “Rockin in the Free World” and Chris Rea’s “Nothing To Fear,”
Songs are a mix of English, Arabic, French & other languages.
