Today, renowned Tunisian DJ and producer Deena Abdelwahed has unveiled her highly anticipated sophomore album, Jbal Rrsas, now available through InFiné Music.
For this album, Abdelwahed has enlisted the help of producer and instrumentalist Khalil Hentati (aka Khalil Epi), composer and musicologist Khyam Allami and mastering engineer, and LGW23 curator, Heba Kadry.
