The Mix unites international Arab music talent in a rousing festival music finale.
Acclaimed Egyptian jazz-rock fusion band Massar Egbari return to London for the first time since their debut in early 2013. They share the main stage with Palestinian electro-dabke band 47SOUL, whose first concert closed Shubbak 2013. The floor is then given over to some of the most innovative audio-visual artists and DJs to dance the night away, including the first UK appearance of Hello Psychaleppo
In the more intimate Studio 1, multi-instrumentalist Karim Sultan introduces his experimental practice, folktronica singer-songwriter Reham enchants with soulful ballads and one of the UK’s most popular Arab bands Karama, led by Soufian Saihi, play music inspired by gnawa and classical Arabic music.
Plus Younes Baba-Ali‘s Carroussa Sonore, short films and spoken word by Hala Ali.
