I recently stumbled on this gorgeous clip by musician Alaa Wardi and his filmmaker brother Seena Imamwerdi, from Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. In ‘Ma3gool’ (pronounced Ma’a'gool), Alaa uses sounds from voice, mouth, and body only, without the use of any musical instruments. He even uses the sounds made by him scratching his beard!
