Liverpool Arab Arts Festival is delighted to finally welcome N3rdistan in person to the city. In 2020, when the pandemic forced us to programme a digital festival, N3rdistan wowed us all with their performance from a hilltop in Andorra.
The very essence of modern Arabic music, N3rdistan combine mystical tunes, compelling rhymes and a relentless flow by the charismatic Walead Ben Selim. A bold fusion sitting between rock, trip hop, electro, oriental-beat with world influences, they mix with ease digital power, ancestral Arabic poetry, the targeted singing intermingling here and there with the melodies of a Qanoon and African Keys.
N3rdistan creates an exciting sound that borders between Oriental beat and Electro-urban, using Ethnic music notes on personal texts and famous freedom poets (Mahmoud Darwich, Gibran Khalil, Nizar Qabbani …) tweaking world samples and sounds, questioning the meaning of life or digital exile. N3rdistan incites the discovery of new musical horizons.
“Music to feed souls and hearts”
