Friday 9 December 2016 @8:30PM | Station

The music of Youmna Saba has anxiety suppressing properties. This is partly due to her singing, but also because of her brilliant arrangements, where an expressive oud is accompanied by shimmering guitars and acoustics of non-musical objects. As a result, her gorgeous third solo album Njoum (2015) sounds hushed and expansive at the same time.
The album caught the attention of British cult hero Mike Cooper – known for his fusion of folk and experimental music – who has since proposed to collaborate with her. As Youmna’s work gains more recognition, we suggest that you too set aside some time to get acquainted with it.
