SOUND

The world music of Deena Abdelwahed comes from a world without borders. The Tunisian DJ and producer combines dark old-European electro-minimalism with North African instruments and sounds. Grinding and scraping industrial beats meet the tender melodies of the Arab box zither qanun, or polyrhythmic percussion duels between the Maghreb bendir frame drum and an 808 drum machine. Abdelwahed sings songs of feminist self-empowerment and implants spiritual murmurs of groaning men’s choirs.
