The Synaptik and Felukah: LONDON CONCERT
Due to government travel restrictions, the Synaptik and Felukah show has been postponed to 22nd October 2021.
With the UK’s recent announcements, Egypt has been placed on the red list meaning neither of the artists are able to fly in to London for the time being. The show will however go on! Releasing their debut track ‘Nefsi’, The Synaptik and Felukah are currently in the studio working on a new song together, both which will be performed first time together in October when the two share the stage.
** To anyone with a ticket for the Jazz Cafe show, your tickets will be directly valid for the new show date on October 22nd. The new show will be moved from a seated to a standing show**
Tickets are refundable through Jazz Cafe, but we encourage ticket holders to hold on to their tickets as the October show will most likely sell out.
One of Shubbak Festival’s flagship projects for their 2021 edition, this stellar collaboration was commissioned to bring together two of the Middle East’s most captivating rappers for a double bill concert and new song debuts.
Presented in partnership with MARSM, a new collaboration commissioned by Shubbak Festival. Produced and programmed by MARSM.
Exclusively for this date, The Synaptik and Felukah perform live together at London’s legendary Jazz Cafe. Enjoy an energetic evening of pioneering sound as two of the most sought-after new-wave hip-hop, rap and trap talents perform solo sets before debuting their two collaborative new singles together.
The Synaptik is a Palestinian-Jordanian rapper at the forefront of a new wave of Arabic rap and trap. With a steady string of new releases, including numerous of iconic collaborations with the region’s hip-hop heavyweights, his distinctive voice and potent lyrics have cemented him as one of the pioneering artists of the Arabic-speaking world. Exploring issues such as migration and social inequality, The Synaptik has been able to take the region’s pulse and broadcast it worldwide through his infectious beats.
Combining her Cairo heritage and the New York City that adopted her, Felukah is a rapper and poet whose work glides between English and Arabic. From classic Arabic musical icons, US hip-hop legends and contemporary prose writers, she pays homage to her past and present, exploring womanhood, diaspora cultures and her self-expression and was dubbed by Scene Noise as ‘the neo-soul artist bringing the Nile to New York’.
