Deena Abdelwahed announces new album 'Jbal Rrsas'
Deena Abdelwahed draws as much from clubbing as she does from the avant-garde scene. Since the release of her debut LP Khonnar, the DJ and producer has been showered with praise for the fine-drawn ways in which her work paints the diversity of Arabic music.
On 8 September, Abdelwahed will release her new album Jbal Rrsas, which she will present at Le Guess Who? 2023. It was produced as part of Consortium Commissions, an initiative set up to showcase emerging artists from the Arab world, run by Brussels-based NGO Mophradat.
None of the album's tracks will be released ahead of release due to a desire to present the record as one whole project. The album was mastered by Heba Kadry, who also curated her performance for Le Guess Who? 2023.
