Fast-rising Moroccan-Canadian talent Mehdi Bahmad is one to keep an eye on. With his enticing flow, empowering confidence, and silky warm vocal presence, the Montreal-based artist boldly redefines perceptions of what it means to be an Arab man in the modern world.
The multifaceted artist, who has a background in the visual arts, envisions a utopian world where the word “haram” doesn’t exist at the nexus of multiple fields. Bahmad reappropriates his background in a ground-breaking manner by connecting his two cultures for causes that go well beyond music. His compelling brand of global pop blends ambient electronica, dreamy avant-pop, and Arabic musical influences into unapologetically intimate melodies.
Son of the East and the West, he dispels several preconceptions and injects a renewing vitality into the global pop scene.
