Listen here - Moody Kablawi Coming all the way from Haifa City, music producer Moody Kablawi is diving deep into a novel fusion of Trip Hop, Jazz and World Music, exploring and incorporating aspects of Arabic Hip Hop and thereby pushing the boundaries of Hip Hop, Funk and Punk. After releasing his 2018 video clip "Ma Fi Ma'ani", Moody has moved to Berlin where he is currently working on a new Disco EP that he will share with us on stage. Listen here - Hawiyya Hawiyya is a women’s Dabke group who explore identity, culture and resistance through dance. The culturally diverse dancers have come together to unite and share their commitment to the Palestinian cause. Hawiyya draws upon traditional folkloric Arab-dabke with a twist of contemporary dance through their skills and experiences in other dance forms, narratives and musical influences such as the Electro-Dabke band ‘47Soul’. The members of Hawiyya have been performing Dabke for many years and have now formed the new group to bring Dabke to various platforms and audiences. The members choreograph their own dances as well as learning exchanges with Dabke groups from and in Palestine.

Listen here - Rasha Nahas Having grown up in Haifa, on the shores of the Mediterranean at the foothills of the Carmel Mountain, her unmistakable sound, which blends dirty unapolagetic electric guitar tones and classical technique with a penchant for intimate storytelling and bold, unabashed poetry, was born out of a roaring Palestinian underground scene. Her songs, which are at once completely uninhibited and yet fiercely controlled, exist in a space where fire fights the quiet moments when silence floods in, violins wail, and her words, though delicately delivered, cut deep. Listen here - Ms. Mohammed "Whoa! A Middle Eastern beat into a rockin' groove!" - Iggy Pop, BBC Ms. Mohammed is a queer U.K.-based immigrant artist, born and raised in Trinidad, where she adopted her “island punk” vision. With heavy hitting rock guitar chords, dhol percussion, upbeat riddims and powerful lyrics that blend protest and pleasure, she definitely isn't one to miss live! Listen here - Feminist Jukebox Feminist Jukebox are ‎a duo who play music made by, or featuring, inspirational and influential women. Over the past few years, they have taken their set to much of the political circuit including Labour Live, World Transformed and Extinction Rebellion.
