Parisian psych-pop unit Al-Qasar emerged in 2018 with a dusty, multi-cultural acid rock style that they dubbed "Arabian Fuzz." Combining elements of punk, post-rock, Middle Eastern folk, garage rock, and desert blues with lyrics in classical Arabic, the band issued their wide-ranging debut long-player Who Are We? in 2022. Al-Qasar was founded by Paris-born, Los Angeles-based guitarist and oud player Thomas Attar Bellier as a love letter to '60s and '70s Turkish psychedelic pop legends like Selda and Erkin Koray. The group's 2020 debut EP, Miraj, recorded in Cairo, featured Bellier and a rotating cast of friends and poets. Fronted by Moroccan vocalist Jaouad El Garouge and combining electric guitars and drums with regional instruments like electric saz, bendir, darbuka, and sagat, Al-Qasar transitioned into a full-on rock band upon relocating to Paris. For their trailblazing 2022 full-length debut, Who Are We?, Bellier and company teamed up with Franco-Algerian oud player Mehdi Haddab (Speed Caravan), Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Sudanese-American singer Alsarah, Egyptian vocalist Hend Elrawy, and punk legend Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys).
