Hot on the heels of Arbanel Tsvia, Fortuna skip from India to 70s Israel where resident Greek songsmith Nino was brewing a unique fusion that quickly became very popular thanks to his distinctive voice. Interestingly, though, the single leads with an instrumental. And what an instrumental! Manic, lo-fi and infectious, the chaos between eastern and western scales on the organ combine the very best of the middle east and the med. "Var Ne Soranim" is more your classic Nikolaidis; all croony and whimsical, he puts so much soul into it his heart is hanging off the mic.
