LAAF 2019 Launch: Juliana Yazbeck

Friday 5 July, 7:45 pm

Royal Court Studio


Liverpool Arab Arts Festival launches with the UK Premiere performance of Juliana Yazbeck’s debut record SUNGOD. Unapologetic and raw, Juliana’s lyrics challenge the effects of colonisation on cultural identities, the current state of love & relationships and gender inequality.

SUNGOD is a call to all women and cultures to shed internalised shame and to remember, reawaken and reclaim our inherent and divine beauty, both as women and as autonomous peoples.

Born in the USA to Lebanese parents, Juliana draws on her mixed cultural upbringing to create her signature sound, an unlikely but mesmerising fusion of spoken word, otherworldly electronics, and haunting Levantine vocals.
