DISCOVER THE PUTZI FAMILY
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 latest album ”لأني أحب - the freedom to be” has many musical sources. The album truly captures the fusion between Classical Arabic and soul music and blends the crisp soulful tone of Frida with refined and vibrant rhythms, haunting bass lines and intricate Oud phrasing, courtesy of Félix Fivaz, Florian Bolliger and Wael Sami Elkholy
Progressive World Music
Almwaya is a musical project that takes you to a progressive world music universe by walking through a tunnel of electronic beats and synthesizers. And as singular as Almwaya’s music are the nostalgic lyrics, sung in a fantasy language that only makes sense through the colors of their tones, and vocal frequencies that balance the feminine and the masculine.
Almwaya's first album "Riding a Camel in the Middle of the Sea" was released in May 2022 on the Italian music label The Garden of J.
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.
