Watch: Get Lucky -- Mashrou' Leila & Nile Rodgers , مشروع ليلى و نايل رودجرز

The underground Lebanese indie band just released a song with Nile Rodgers. The same Nile who is a multiple Grammy award winning American musician, producer, composer, arranger, and guitarist. He is the lead guitarist and co-founding member with Bernard Edwards of the band Chic.

This is a big deal for the band that has a cult following around the Arab world and among those folks who study Arabic. I must confess, this is the first song of theirs that has a across language appeal. They have been a cool and different musical experience--they do what they want to do not what the producers think would sell best. This once Mashrou' Leila does both so well.

Once again, they show some serious indie chops
