Solace: the music to my noir video

At a reading in New York last night, I was asked who recorded the music to the noir video I posted on Youtube to showcase my latest Palestinian detective novel A Grave in Gaza (The Saladin Murders in the UK). The music is by a group called Solace and can be found on the excellent magnatune.com in the World Music section. The album is called Shawaza and the song we used is called Two Gypsies. Listen to the album here:

Because Magnatune is an online record label, you can choose how much you pay for the album and download it as many times as you want. It’s a great service and they have fabulous artists, particularly with a Middle Eastern sound.
The video, if you haven’t seen it yet, is on my website or at:
