WARA X Kallemi [Palestina-Latina Takeover]

unnamed
War on Want, MARSM UK and Movimientos Present:
Wara & Kallemi
 
A dynamic double bill showcasing some of the most powerful Latin American and Palestinian acts on the scene. From piercing Cuban conga to unapologetic Arabic hip-hop, dembow and folklore, this electrifying lineup celebrates the revolutionary power of music from Latin America to the Middle East.
 
WARA
Playing deep into the rhythms of urban Latin America, Wara is an award-winning musical outfit that fuels its signature sound with bass-heavy dembow, biting synths and hip-hop.
 
Led by producer and composer Eliane Correa, the band formed in 2010, and has since become known for powering a Latin American narrative that celebrates regional music cultures such as mambo and cumbia. With backgrounds spanning from Cuba to Congo, Venezuela and Chile, Wara’s performances are a musical homage to their heritage; provocative and potent, a Pan-Latin powerhouse that’s paving a way of its own.
 
Kallemi
Born on the path between Basel and Ramallah, Kallemi emerged from a collaborative musical project between Swiss, Dominican and Palestinian musicians. Blending deep buttery beats with world influenced percussions, dipped in distorted unapologetic guitars - soulful, delicate yet fierce singing added with Arabic, English and Latino hip-hop.
 
Starting as an exchange project initiated by Kaserne Basel in 2018, the group first met in Ramallah and worked intensely focusing on a one-time show. Yet as soon as they finished their performance in Basel, it was clear to everyone that the project would not stop here.
 
Date: Saturday 7th March 2019
