Baghdad Texas: Music From the Motion Picture Soundtrack

Booka-&-Flaming-Geckos.jpg

“Booka” is Austin percussionist, producer and Loud House Records label owner Booka Michel; the Flaming Geckos is the ad hoc collection of hotshot players he assembled to tackle the intriguing mélange of musical styles demanded by a movie about a Middle Eastern dictator who convalesces in Texas after his plane crashes on the Mexican border. Baghdad Texas: Music From the Motion Picture Soundtrack weaves together strands of Latin, Americana and Middle Eastern music in an off-kilter but still somehow coherent blend over the course of its brief but enjoyable running time.
