Paying homage to the Middle East’s popular music history, Hishek Bishek is a pulsing club night dedicated to the region’s vibrant sonic (sub)cultures. From chart-topping Iraqi & Lebanese dancefloor hits, Palestinian electronic dabke, the newest releases from Cairo’s underground and nostalgic synthed-out 90’s classics, Hishek Bishek has become a vibrant staple in London’s late-night club scene.
Now in its 17th edition, Hishek Bishek UK – هشك بشك has become a household name revelling in the sounds of darbuka, MENA beats, percussive rhythms and a musical soundtrack to have you dancing all night. Returning to East London to start off 2020 with a bang, this night will feature a double DJ headline bill of two of the Middle East’s finest party starters. As always, we say “Ahlan Wa Sahlan!” to our regulars and warmly invite anyone curious enough to attend – welcome to the Arabic party you wish you knew about earlier.
