N3rdistan


Friday 9 December 2016 @11:00PM | Station

Often referred to as the future of alternative Moroccan music, N3rdistan is an electro-urban project rooted in Oriental inspiration. Led by the charismatic Walead Ben Selim, this quartet navigates the genres of rock, trip-hop, electro and oriental beat with surprising ease. Relying furthermore on the texts of famous freedom poets such as Mahmoud Darwish, Gibran Khalil Gibran and Nizar Qabbani, N3rdistan tweaks world music samples and sounds, questioning the meaning of digital exile and the multi-plurality of the human condition. They invent a dream space where they call upon centuries of Arabic poetry, traditional music, unusual instrumentation and electronic sounds, inciting the discovery of new musical horizons.
