TootArd Live in London

TootArd Live In London: Formed by brothers Hasan and Rami Nakhleh, whose home is in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, TootArd are a mountain rock reggae band seeking to transcend their circumstances’ privation and isolation, by making joyful, captivating, wittily ironic music, interweaving West African, Saharan and Caribbean strands with classical Arab modalities. Their second album 'Laissez Passer', is an uplifting, eclectic, funky, highly danceable party of a record in which they combine their various influences to create a unique trademark sound. One common metaphor is that of a bird, signifying freedom from oppression, the band members’ individual journeys to various parts of Europe; and, presumably, their restless quest to combine different styles of music into something all their own.​ Taking place 1 February, 2018 at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA London.
