Marsm presents the return of the Palestinian powerhouse, 47SOUL.
The spearheading musical musketeers have created global headlines with their no-compromise dance music, pioneering a genre that they called Shamstep, in which hip-hop and electronica are fused with Middle Eastern melodies and excellence.
Their trademark sound, rooted in shaabi music, pop culture and tantalising dabke beats, has become incredibly popular both internationally and in the Arabic-speaking world. From their irresistible stage presence, to their bilingual lyrics and showstopping visuals, 47SOUL have become one of the leading voices within Palestine’s unparalleled cultural resistance.
As they come to Manchester for an exclusive night debuting their latest album ‘Semitics’, expect the high energy, hypnotic hooks and pulsing synths that define their pioneering sound.
Best known for his seamless blends and nostalgia for the 90s, Supermike’s DJ sets are foot-stomping musical journey across the Arabic-speaking world. From top of the chart Lebanese hits, Syrian Dabke and underground Rai, this set will also incorporate groovy beats from around the globe to warm up the mood for this anticipated concert.
This tour is happening with thanks to the wonderful support from Arts Council England.
