This progressive New-York-based band was formed by Palestinian musician Tareq Abboushi in the Fall of 2000. Since it's inception, SHUSMO has cultivated a unique identity by creating an innovative and original type of music utilizing a wide range of influences with Middle-Eastern music at its core.
What makes it stand out is how organically their rich and versatile repertoire blends different genres. It is almost impossible to label the style, thus the name "SHUSMO" which in Arabic means "Whatchamacallit".
