• Nominated for the Grammy Rock Album of the Year in 2016!
  • Brothers of the Baladi celebrates their 40th Anniversary with the release of their 12th album, Gravity of Love.  This album proves that there’s plenty of musical sharpness and hunger in their mix of Middle Eastern musical influences and Western rock.  Featuring the band’s first use of electronics and programming, the band made a conscious decision to push themselves and create something that really draws together musical cultures.
