Default Music for Hookah

I'm planning on opening a hookah bar and would like to hear of suggestions for a good music mix to play on the stereo for customers that will entice them to stay. It will be near a university and of course will have a TV (with sound off) for watching ball games, etc. Thanx for any help!

My partner is Syrian and he wants to play a lot of middle eastern type music. Don't know if that would go over well down here in bama. Also, i forgot to add that there are a lot of business types in the area. Gotta try to set a mood...

this is a sample of the bombay the hard way albums-

it may be good for what youre looking for. its middle eastern-ish (well india- not sure if that counts) and has that hipster feel to it that businessmen like cuz it makes them feel young and with it.

There's a ton of good lounge music that would work well. Pretty much anything by Thievery Corporation is good; look especially for the albums "The Mirror Conspiracy" and "The Richest Man in Babylon." Also look for "DJ Kicks: Thievery Corporation Remixes," which contains remixes of Thievery Corp stuff by other DJs. Also, in a different direction, mellower post-rock like The Album Leaf and Sigur Ros sound great.

Alternatively, you could go for fusioned stuff like Anoushka Shankar.

Damn I was just gonna recommend some Thievery Corp too... Though I think every hookah bar has at least one of their records spinning.

Some Muslimgauze might work, the more accessable stuff that is. Leftfield too

There is a ton of MP3s that would fit the mood on this site...

http://www.aaalimoonline.com/arabic/Arabic%20Full%20Albums/


Some of my favorites from that site are Fares Karam and Tony Kirwin. They should fit right in at a hookah bar.

Mellow trance should work, few words, nice beat, good chill music.
I have to agree with Dunkel on the 'no rap' suggestion, few things can make anyone I know clear a room than that.
