Companion Album

amatus-picture-for-bioComing in Summer 2009  –  a diverse array of tracks from and inspired by NEW MUSLIM COOL

Jazz, neo-soul, world music, reggae, progressive hip-hop, electronica and even some good old-fashioned South Asian rock ‘n’ roll all combine in one big collection that reflects the complex beauty of our world and times.

The result is the NEW MUSLIM COOL EXPANDED SOUNDTRACK ALBUM, an amazingly eclectic compilation album that defies all categories and boundaries to proclaim itself — deeply and simply human.

mikaal-sulaimanLead producers  and composers Amatus-sami Karim, Herman Pearl aka Soy Sos, and Mikaal Sulaiman serve up a delicious mix of flavors, tempos and moods.

NEW MUSLIM COOL stirs it up even more with new tracks by Puerto Rican American MC’s M-Team, fearless Punjabi taqwacore punk rockers The Kominas, neo-soul and conscious hip-hop duo the ReMINDers, up-and-coming MC Boaz, and acclaimed HBO Def Jam poets Amir Sulaiman and Liza Garza.

Very special guests will include jazz piano legend Ahmad Jamal, bassist and musician extraordinaire Meshell Ndgeocello, and rising new jazz star Jason Lindner, with unique spoken word contributions from Q-Tip and other guest artists.

The NEW MUSLIM COOL EXPANDED SOUNDTRACK ALBUM  will be available on CD and for download in late summer.  Sign our mailing list to get notified the minute this groundbreaking collection drops!herman-soy-sos-e280a6r-promo-pic
