The One Thousand and One Eastern Voices
by By Benjamin Minimum
From the call of the muezzin to the cries of the Palestinian underground, the pre-Islamic music and the Egyptian chaabi electro, let’s go back to the voices that feed the infinite musical diversity of the Arab world.
Stuck between Syria and Israel, Lebanon doesn’t hold an easy position. A multidenomitional country that often suffers first from regional turmoil, Lebanon is also one of the most progressive states in the Middle East. Fairuz and Marcel Khalifé are the most famous Lebanese artists. The first is the most respected diva in the Arab world after Umm Kulthum and the second was written in the 70s songs that have since become identity anthems in the whole region. He has handed over his double musical culture, Arab and Western, to his two sons Bachar Mar-Khalifé and Rami (from the band Aufgang), who have added elements coming notably from electro cultures to develop their own musical identity.
Beirut also hosts a dynamic hip-hop scene from which Clotaire K and Rayess Bek hail, and they regularly associates music and pictures, such as in the project Love & Revenge which Bek works with plastic artist Randa Mirza and Algerian electric oud player Mehdi Haddab. Pioneers in the Arab world, the duo Soapkills introduces the trip-hop style at the beginning of the 2000s. The female singer Yasmine Hamdan settled in France afterwards. She worked with the former Taxi Girl and occasional Madonna producer Mirwais. Her sensual singing on electro-rock rhythms has caught the attention of American director Jim Jarmusch, who inserted a live sequence of her band in his movie Only Lovers Left Alive. The cofounder of Soapkills, Zeid Hamdan (a pure homonymous coincidence) is a leading host of the Lebanese underground.
With the Arab Springs, the Cairo underground has taken center stage. MC Sadat and Amr Haha, engaged voices of the mahraganat movement or electro-chaabi, have been commenting from the early days of the popular uprising which would be the end of Mubarak’s regime. An explosive cocktail of hardcore beats, electro-Eastern arrangements and rap with sometimes autotuned choruses, the style evolves beyond the spring and exports thanks to Islam Chipsy and El Dakhlaweya. Other artists emerge by creating new hybrids esthetics between jazz experimentations, poetry and sound research. Ahead of this trend, you will find Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, Maurice Louca and Maryam Saleh, gathered around the project Lekhfa. Near them, Nadah El Shazly, who spends half her time living in Cairo and the other half in Montreal.
