Following a sold-out album preview show in London, the spectacular 47SOUL is back on the road as part of their upcoming 2018 UK Tour. Launching their new album ‘Balfron Promise’, they’ll be heading north and bringing their unstoppable musical force to Birmingham, Sheffield and Manchester. Let the dabke begin!
Enthralling and electrifying, 47Soul combines traditional Palestinian street music with bass-heavy dance beats, analogue synthesisers and hypnotic guitar lines. Their lyrics, delivered in tripped-out verses by the four members in a mixture of Arabic and English, embody a captivating celebration of movement and a irrefutable call for freedom. The much-awaited release of the album expands on the band’s pioneering genre of ShamStep, an infectious, cultural and musical homage to ‘Dabke’, the renowned traditional celebration music of the Shams (present-day area of Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan & Syria).
Their new album, ‘Balfron Promise’, emerges as a product of the band’s three year residency in London, a profoundly unique experience for the four members and their music. The album’s themes are inspired by both modern-day London and the 100 year-old politics still influencing 47Soul’s story to this day. Socially topical and lyrically astute, Balfron Promise holds one promise, that their future will be written by no one but themselves.
– Balfron Promise will be released February 2nd on Glitterbeat Records –
