Two years after their first recorded collaboration, the immensely successful Kachf el Mahjoub / Unveiling the Hidden (for the Ruptured label), Lebanese artists and musicians Mazen el-Sayed (El Rass) and Jawad Nawfal (Munma) released its long-awaited follow-up, Adam, Darwin and the Penguin, in May 2014.

A few days before the launch concert of the album in a popular live venue in Hamra, Beirut, we ran a radio show detailing the genesis and production of the record and its different contributors.
