The Saudi Arabian musician and singer MSYLMA channels pre-Islamic and quranic poetry in his deeply personal music that combines r&b and experimental club music. He collaborated with the Cairo-based producer Ismael for his newest album مذاهب النسيان / The Tenets of Forgetting. Ismael provides a lush electronic patchwork of swelling synths, emotive sound design and club-adjacent percussion to provide a hypnotic framework for MYSLMA’s soaring, plaintive voice to shine through. During Rewire they’ll perform their album live.
MSYLMA & Ismael perform on Friday 8 April.
