“Crystalline” (Omar Souleyman remix)

Björk has collaborated with some pretty cool dudes over the past several years — Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt), Chris Corsano, Antony, Dave Longstreth (Dirty Projectors), Mike Patton. But these collaborations are all lame as shit compared to the somewhat recently announced collaboration with Omar Souleyman. While she’s in the midst of promoting her ambitious Biophilia project, Björk (or someone who works for her) has found the time to upload an in-studio vid with the Syrian dabke master to Vimeo, which will eventually result in some presumably fantastic release.
