Fortuna Records is a reissue label and a DJ crew from Tel-Aviv, championing the obscure forgotten sounds of the Middle East with a string of top quality vinyl reissues accompanied by notoriously wild parties.
With two Boiler Room sessions under their belt and fans such Gilles Peterson, Gaslamp Killer, Acid Arab, Optimo and John Talabot, Fortuna never cease to raise the bar with insane releases such as their recent Drums of Lebanon reissue by the mysterious Raja Zahr.
Fortuna Records were nominated twice for the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards for Track of the Year, in 2015 for "Jamilah" by Ihsan Al Munzer and in 2016 for our first original 12" by Kalbata, "Al Shark".
Their wild DJ sets are an all night belly-dance excursion into the psychedelic side of Middle Eastern Funk mixed with African tribalizm all the way into 4x4 techno workouts of a similar nature.
2017 sees Fortuna in top form, with a monthly NTS Radio show, a track record of gigs in London, Paris, LA, Germany, South Africa, Poland & Greece, while still releasing the Middle East's most obscure records, they show no signs of stopping!
