In a nutshell
Challenging the boundaries between Rock and Electronica, MARSM is proud to present El Morabba3’s debut London show.
Trailblazers in the alternative Arabic music scene, this Palestinian-Jordanian outfit has crafted a groundbreaking sound to become one of the leading socially and politically relevant bands reviving the Arab Independent music scene today. Their unique rock/post-rock, electronic sound, socially engaged lyrics and an euphoric stage presence have only been solidified through the release of their acclaimed second album, Taraf Al Kheit (2016). Hailed for breaking cultural barriers and limits, the band has gained a massive appeal to a generation of fans trying to find their grounding in a restless and unstable region. El Morabba3’s music has furthermore found an uncanny way of expressing the thoughts, concerns and anger of people towards the realities they are living today, albeit in a way that is accessible, engaging and musically spectacular.
Expanding the line-up and guaranteeing a lively dancefloor, are feature sets by Whirldfuzzz DJs (NTS Manchester) and Moth (White Noise) on the decks, as the celebration continues for a night of dancing with a mixture of Saharan blues, psychedelic rock and Arabic beats.
What to Expect
A whirlwind of expression and resonating beats as Rock/post-rock merges with electronica and Arabic celebration music.

'El Morabba3 to us is the window in which we see things we want to express...being from a region that had seen a lot and still does every day. This window serves as our escape and our return all together' - El Morabba3
