Lena Chamamyan: she’s from Syria. Judging by her last name, she’s Armenian. She makes jazz-oriented Arab baby-making music, sort of the musical love child of Fairuz and Chet Baker. She has a voice like a motherfucking malaak. Lenaleh, if you’re out there, keep your head down – even the Jews are worried about you. I hear anywhere else is nice this time of year.
