If for 2014's 'Kali City', Belgian oud player of Jordanian-Yugoslav origin Karim Baggili, still revisited his roots, then 'Apollo You Sixteen' is all about experimentation. The album is a mix of grooves, electro and classical, with the somewhat rougher sounding tracks ('Exitimuse', 'Balaka Bike', 'Bee Red') reminding yours truly of Mehdi Haddab's work with Speed Caravan. The oud as you've probably haven't heard it before!
