Samche “Umi Yemen”

Samche is a humanitarian worker based in conflict zones such as Yemen, Iraq and Libya. His latest single, “Umi Yemen” was recorded within UN compounds and on the road near the frontlines of war, using equipment suitable for on-the-go travel. He describes the track as “an instrumentalization of data on how many civilians were killed or injured each day through 2018-19, as well as sample sounds of fighting in Sana’a recorded at the end of 2017.” The result is an emotional dance track with a shuffling beat and native Middle Eastern instruments.
