Bringing you a full Batov Records artists lineup:

**SHIRAN**
S H I R A N has already achieved huge success, not just in her native country but in areas less expected – those across the Arab world. Inspired to embrace her Yemenite roots, she has had her lyrics translated into Yemenite Arabic, with her latest album also featuring elements of Iraqi and Western music. Combine these elements with her fiercely female-empowered stance; Afro beats and zero political agenda and you have one of the most remarkable artists to appear from the Middle East in years.

**Gypsy Hill**
the beast from nearby the middle east – play an intoxicating mix of balkan brass, mediterranean surf rock, ska & swing. Featuring guitars, horns, tuba, a scratch DJ and a mix of live and electronic beats, Gypsy Hill effortlessly mix the traditional with a uniquely modern sound.

**Sandman Project**
Unifying the psychedelic from West African rock with slinky Ethiopian jazz, emboldened with an improvisational vibration.
