Need To Know More About The Artists?


Neshama (Wael Alkak, Yazan Alqaq, Shadi Abazid)
Neshama is a spellbinding contemporary project that performs traditional rhythms in digital versions, combining recordings, visionary musical adaptations and improvisation into live performances based on folkloric styles, traditional rhythms and classical Arabic music.

Hasan Kai
The past year has been one of global darkness and isolation. Where companionship flickers through a screen rather than a human touch. It’s been a time to dive deep, to create and express those feelings bubbling up inside, to discover all the longing and the hope. For Hasan Kai, one half of the band TootArd, the months have brought the inspiration to define his guitar playing and compose the music on the EP Salma Sunshine (Carpet Ride Records). Hasan Kai will perform this new Solo Project in AL.Festival.2021 in addition to more of this instrumental compositions that will be played first time on stage.

Jamila & The Other Heroes
JAMILA & THE OTHER HEROES is a Berlin based band from manywhere that combines psychedelic desert funk with political content. While racist agitation is increasingly becoming acceptable in many circles of our society, the five musicians have made it their mission to break down prejudices towards people with histories of migration and asylum and make the abundance of cultural diversity more visible and audible.

Edna Martinez
Artist, DJ / curator and radio host from the Colombian Caribbean based in Berlin. Her musical selection is linked to her artistic research exploring autobiographical migratory routes. From Afro-Caribbean grooves to jazz bases, tribal polyrhythms, folklore, and beyond, she shakes global dance floors.

Rasha Hilwi
Rasha is a DJ storyteller, an artistic form that combines stories and music. In her work she focuses on the questions surrounding “Home بيت” and “Ghorbah غربة” and their intersection with feminism and identity. And when she brings her music set to the stage, She becomes DJ Hilwi, who believes that dancing is the most beautiful way to travel and feel home at the same time.
