Geometrik presents the reissue, remastered from the original tapes, of a classic Esplendor Geométrico record sold out for more than 15 years!: Sheikh Aljama was recorded between 1987 and 1989 (and originally published by Daft Records), an especially interesting period where the unique and characteristic rhythmic-industrial EG style, developed in the '80s, turns more minimalistic, schematic, cold and rough, with sporadic influences of Arabic music and rhythms. Sheikh Aljama is an Esplendor Geométrico classic and one of the best albums of their whole career, including their hit "Sinaya." Sheikh Aljama stands out for its incorporation of sonorities, voices and percussion with Arabic elements, due in great measure to Gabriel Riaza, who a few years later would leave E.G. and convert to Islam. Released in digipack format for the first time ever and includes a 4-page booklet.
