Well, I guess Brooklyn Funk Essentials is a giveaway, as far as genre goes. I will go one step further, in that their second album, In the Buzzbag, is a collaboration with Laco Tafya, a Turkish/Romanian gypsy band. Here we go: "Selling Out".

When I saw "Brooklyn Funk Essentials" in the record store, I felt like someone had put together a band with my mind in mind or something. They're lots of fun! ...And I recognize this tune, too.

The lyrics, and the vocalist, are memorable, at least.

I like this a lot. Cool groove, nice Arabic flourishes, and the monologue is funny.
