Maryam Saleh & Zeid Hamdan + El Far3i

Maryam Saleh & Zeid Hamdan + El Far3i: Described as a magnetic collaboration, Maryam Saleh & Zeid Hamdan is an experimental musical partnership between Egyptian singer and songwriter Maryam Saleh, who is a powerful voice for her generation, and the pioneering electro-music producer Zeid Hamdan, who has also been named as the 'godfather of Lebanese underground music'. In 2012 the duo played their brand of Arabic trip-hop together in Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Europe - including London, Rome, Paris and Amsterdam - having developed their own blend of traditional Arabic songs, hip-hop and electronica, which unite to produce raw, energetic and sophisticated music that reflects on the contemporary political situation. They will be joined by El Far3i, the Palestinian songwriter, percussionist and hip-hop MC and vocalist. Taking place on 23 October, 2015 at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6LA.
