Tunisian vocalist Deena Abdelwahed earned her stripes on the Tunisian scene and as part of the Arabstazy collective and is noted for her hybridized DJ sets.
Deena was born in the Qatari city of Doha in 1989, and her incredible performance at Sonar 2017 (one of the edition’s top ten according to the New York Times) catapulted her into the clubbing universe’s most demanding spheres.
Her artistic efforts are hopeful attempts to recapture the aspects that make up Arabic music’s variety, drawing inspiration from electronic dance music influenced by club music, as well as the present avant-garde and experimental scene.
She was the developer of an outstanding performance at the CTM Berlin Festival as a producer. Her debut EP, “Klabb,” was published in early 2017 on InFiné to positive reviews from the blogosphere and electronic media. That same year she worked with Fever Ray on the tunes “Plunge” and “An Itch” from their second album.
”Khonnar” was the title of her debut album, which she published on the InFiné record label (a term referring to a Tunisian slang word designating what is hidden). Deena Abdelwahed’s creative world order has taken shape tilting point between north and south.
