Live at the capital’s iconic Jazz Cafe, this stellar night features solo sets from The Synaptik and Felukah and the exclusive global premiere of two new songs created in collaboration as part of a multi-strand Shubbak Festival commission in partnership with MARSM.

Palestinian-Jordanian rapper/singer The Synpatik is at the forefront of a new wave of sound for young Arabs. His honest and potent lyrics are delivered through an effortless combination of rapping and singing. He has collaborated with several heavyweight hip hop artists which has cemented his status as one of the music stars of the Arab region.

Hailing from Cairo and New York, Felukah frequently switches between English and Arabic exploring cultural issues through her verse. She has been dubbed by Scene Noise as ‘the neo-soul artist bringing the Nile to New York’ and by Azeema Magazine as ‘the rapper inspiring a new wave of Egyptian women’.

The music videos drop in August and September. Follow us on social media for further updates.

يرافق مهرجان شباك بالاشتراك مع مرسم MARSM اثنين من أكثر مواهب الهيب هوب والراب والتْراب رواجاً ليتعاونا ويجمعا موسيقاهما الديناميكة على منصة واحدة في لندن.

في حفل حي ومع بث مباشر من مقهى الجاز الأيقوني في العاصمة، تقدم هذه السهرة المميزة العرض الأول في العالم والحصري لأغنيتين جديدتين تم إنجازهما ضمن عمل مشترك وفيها مقاطع فرديّة لكل فنّان.

مغني الراب الفلسطيني ـــــ الأردني السينابتيك The Synpatik يقف في مقدّمة أصوات النيوويف بين الشباب العرب. تصل كلماته الصادقة والمؤثّرة عبر مزيج سلس بين الراب والغناء. قام بالتعاون مع العديد من فناني الهيب هوب من العيار الثقيل ما عزّز مكانته كأحد أهم نجوم الموسيقى في المنطقة العربية.

تنحدر Felukah ‘فلوكة‘ من القاهرة ونيويورك وكثيراً ما تتنقل بين الإنكليزيّة والعربيّة مستكشفة القضايا الثقافية في عباراتها. تمت دبلجتها من قبل Scene Noise بعنوان ‘فنانة النيوسول تحضر النيل إلى نيويورك‘ ومن قبلة مجلة Azeema ‘مغنية الراب تلهم موجة جديدة من النساء المصريات‘.

المزيد من الأغاني المفردة وفيديوهات الموسيقى في الصيف القادم. تابعونا على وسائط التواصل الاجتماعي للوصول إلى المزيد من التحديثات والمحتوى الحصري.

Palestinian-Jordanian Rapper/Singer, The Synaptik, is pioneering a new wave of sound for the Arab youth. His honest and potent lyrics are highlighted by his song-writing style that merges singing and rapping effortlessly.

The Synaptik has collaborated with numerous artists all around the world, but his collaborations with regional Hip Hop heavyweights solidified his status in the Arab region. With shows in Jordan, Palestine, Egypt and Lebanon under his belt, as well as his debut album Om Al Mawjat with an all-star list of guest features, doing shows in Europe such as The Fusion Festival in Germany , and other shows in Germany, Austria and France, not to mention his Collaboration Ep called Terminal with Syrian/Filipino rapper/producer Chyno. Slowing down does not seem to be in his plans.

Based in Ramallah, The Synaptik has managed to garner over 20 million streams and views across different streaming platforms in just one year.

Hailing from Cairo to New York City, Felukah entered the music scene in 2018 with her neo-soul/hip-hop EP Yansoon. Felukah frequently code-switches between English and Arabic, exploring cultural issues and multiplicity in her verse. In 2019, Felukah released her debut mixtape Citadel with the help of her brother Malik in their Harlem home. She is dubbed by Scene Noise as “the neo-soul artist bringing the Nile to New York '' and by Azeema Magazine as “the rapper inspiring a new wave of Egyptian women”.

On August 13, Felukah released her debut album Dream 23 via Abu Recordings. The Project embodies the artist’s vision and soul for a twenty-third turn around the sun. Felukah’s next EP Kawkab, slated for May 2021, looks beyond hip-hop and into other schools of music. Listeners can expect a brief trip to another kawkab before returning home yet again…
