47Soul at London Remixed Festival: 47Soul is the electro-mijwez, shamstep and choubi band with its members rooted in Bilad Al-Sham. Spanning the divides from Amman to the Galilee, the Golan Heights to Ramallah, their new sound has rapidly amassed fans in the Middle East and Europe, as they blast the electric Arabic debka through underground music scenes. Overcoming physical and logistical challenges, the band came together to play electronic Palestinian street music, writing and performing to speak about freedom of movement, whether that’s sparking new dance styles or singing about breaking down border check points. For the past two years the 47Soul band has based itself between Jordan and the UK and spreading the new wave of Arabic music. Performing as part a big line-up at the London Remixed Festival, which itself is a celebration of the best emerging musical talent and genres in the UK, taking place on 6 February, 2016 at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6LA.
