An Arab rapper who was born and raised in Damascus' Jewish Quarter as a Palestinian refugee until the age of nineteen. In 2015 he went through the asylum journey process in order to reach Sweden, and in 2022 he relocated to Berlin. The Palestinian-Syrian environment has always influenced Ebn Hoari's work, The outcome was a collection of politically and socially heavy subjects reflected his views and beliefs. For him freedom is indivisible and the intersectionality of daily fight is a necessity, personal is political and political is personal. Ebn Hoari's approach is defined by a balance of harmony in adapting the language and rhythm to transform rap from being a musical product to a living human experience shared by Arabic speakers. He has a musical and poetic sense that contribute to the creation of work in which the listener enjoys the beauty of music while also cultivating a desire to explore the folds of language and underlying meanings.
The Arabic indie pop duo, Maii Waleed a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Alexandria - Egypt, and Zeid Hamdan a producer from Beirut - Lebanon, met in 2010 during Hamdan’s short visit to Alexandria. Maii & Zeid performances are lively, the two coming from a very different age background, manage to result in a great on stage balance. Maii with her guitar and vocals and Hamdan on synthesizers and electronics, combined are the best of live concerts energy that the Arab region offered to the music scene in the past few years.
DJ Leila Moon is a Songwriter, Producer and DJ specialising in funk, disco, raï, gnawa, afrobeat, r’n’b, mahraganat, electronic and house! Her eclectic music style is a culmination of her collective influences and intercultural experiences. Born to an Algerian mother and Morrocan father, she grew up watching anime and bollywood, listening to raï music, arab pop, french chansons, american folk and jazz. By songwriting and producing, music connected her with her roots and the desire to share it with others molded her identity. Today she enjoys sharing tracks with sounds from all around the world, focusing on different genres in arabic music. Throughout the set her identity is reflected in the form of energetic musical storytelling. In addition to DJing, her creative calling is in producing her own music and collaborating with other artists.
Music and party sherryaeri considers highly political and tries to present artists as well as genres that don't get as much space as they should and mixes them with Arabic sounds. They therefore locate themselves in the category "genrefluid" and take us through different genres just to name a few: Rap Edits, Jersey Club, Baile Funk and Electro Chaabi. Through this, sherryaeri manages to give us a sense of belonging and celebrate our multidimensional realities. Thus, sherryaeri already enchanted the masses internationally at festivals like Splash in Germany, clubs like Yuyu in Mexico City or renowned events like Hoe_mies. One thing is clear: their sounds are always for booty shaking, relieving stress and letting go of the pressure under capitalist, patriarchal white supremacy.
AL.BERLIN is a cultural collective active in Berlin since 2019, that aims to support and connect people through art, music and various knowledge productions, with the Contemporary Moment of West Asia and North Africa (WANA) – whether this moment is coming from the geographic region itself or from its various diasporas.
This event is part of the Threads of Resilience Festival
Given the current situation and urgency to express, we decided to co-organise a community-led and collectively curated 3-day festival “Threads of Resilience” from 14-16 December at Oyoun.Those include a press conference, bazaar, panels, film screening, talks, exhibition, workshops, concerts, healing session, theater, puppet show for children, and parties. With this festival, we want to reflect on and learn from movements of resistance, resilience, and solidarity across the world and come together for three days of ephemerality and collaborative archiving. We want to address and speak out against repression, silencing, instrumentalisation, and division. We need to continue to empower, promote, and celebrate pluralistic perspectives from, with, and intersectionally marginalised communities.Admission is based on free donation (nobody will be denied entry if they cannot donate). All proceeds will be given to organizations in support of victims of racist police violence and to organizations giving legal support to people threatened with deportation.
