MARSM UK and Shubbak Festival present: Kahareb #2
Bringing together the finest selection of electronic and underground artists from the Middle East and North Africa, Kahareb aims to celebrate the vibrant underground scenes of techno, folktronic, global bass, house and trance.
SAMA’ (SKYWALKER) ★ SHKOON ★ NURI ★ ڭليثر GLITTER ٠٠
Sama’ (aka. Skywalker) is the DJ and electronic music producer from Palestine playing techno, house, and other deeper sub-genres with a unique twist of her own. Her Boiler Room debut in 2018 has racked up over 1.5MIL views as she continues to solidify her imprint on the European and Middle Eastern electronic music scene.
Masterfully refining a unique sound they call ‘Oriental Slow-House’, Shkoon mixes Arabic scales, melodies and traditional folk songs with classical harmonic structures. An unparalleled live set filled with raw atmosphere, passion and a driving pulse.
Producer and percussionist from Tunisia, now living in Copenhagen, Nuri is one of the promising musicians of African futurism, mixing deep bass, organic percussion with poly rhythmic grooves, sharing bills with names like Clap Clap and Dengue Dengue Dengue.
Originally from Rabat, Morocco, Glitter combines her chaabi roots with her razor-sharp electronic selection, diffusing a sound that takes her North African roots on a ride through techno and cosmic disco.
With support from Arts Council England, A.M. Qattan Foundation, Bagri Foundation and the British Council
Presented with additional support from Cockayne Grants for the Arts and London Community Foundation.
