Deena Abdelwahed (Tunis/Toulouse)

  • Kaserne 1B Klybeckstrasse Basel, BS, 4057 Switzerland (map)

The reason Deena Abdelwahed decided to swap her jazz-soaked discs by J Dilla and Flying Lotus for more club-based dance music can probably be traced back to the illegal rave parties that started happening in the heart of Tunisia in 2010. After her first tentative musical steps in soul and funk bands, the DJ autodidact quickly developed into one of the most innovative and adventurous voices of the Tunisian techno scene during the Arab Spring. The Toulouse-based artist has become a firm favourite with audiences at established festivals, such as Sónar, and selected club shows thanks to her sound that sits somewhere between urban rhythm and energetic avant-garde.
