Arab Soul from Beirut
Creating love and joy through music, that is what Lebanese soul singer Frida's music is all about. In her stories wrapped in songs, she sings of the divine feminine in all of us and summons the energy of the elements - which comes rushing in so undoubtedly that it is inevitably transmitted to the audience.
Frida is first and foremost, free. She brings this freedom to all of us ready to embody our fullest selves. In her music lies the promise of our collective awakening.
Frida's Arab Soul from Beirut is influenced by all types of music that make her heart shiver or dance: American soul, funk and jazz; French chanson and oriental tarab, and a good amount of African rhythms, always.

Lebanese outfit sandmoon offers an original take on indie pop/rock, infusing it with subtle Middle-Eastern intonations and melancholy, and a certain timelessness. Singer-songwriter Sandra Arslanian, who initiated the project, was born in Lebanon, raised in Belgium and has Armenian roots – a contrasted blend that is perceptible in the music.
Endowed with voice, melody, and word, Tamara Qaddoumi’s striking vocals lead musical layers composed of galactic synths, expressive drums and searing guitars, embracing the conflicting dynamics of electronics.
Qaddoumi’s hybrid Kuwaiti, Palestinian, Lebanese and Scottish upbringing weaves conscious questions and discoveries around identity and belonging into her repertoire. Traveling through complex melodic arrangements, her lyrics oscillate between desire and observation. Since 2018, Tamara Qaddoumi has released two EPs, been featured in Marie Claire, Vogue, and Bazaar, and has regularly graced Lebanon’s stages with her band.
Tamara Qaddoumi's third EP "Sorry Signal", a rumination on death carried by a sleek Cold Pop sound, will be released in the fall of 2023.
