The album was produced by Ziad Rahbani, and recorded during the same sessions as his Abu Ali 12″.
Its first side traverses more traditional Lebanese music, with Arabic strings and percussion. On the flip, the two tracks bring funk, disco and jazz influences into the mix.
Wahdon follows Wewantsounds reissue of Abu Ali earlier this year.
