Experimental DJ Set on Ghorba at Dublab Radio

14 October 2021  ︎  Los Angeles / New York

A special experimental DJ set airing Thursday, October 14th 10pm PST / 1 AM EST on Dublab Radio for Ghorba. 

This experimental mix was compiled in the wake of mourning the most recent 2021 (and ongoing) atrocities in Gaza, Sheikh Jarrah, Beirut, Afghanistan and Artsakh. The pacing and mood accurately conveys my year’s wide range of emotions – through the harsh lens of diasporic dissonance living here in the States.

Blessings and protection for freedom fighters everywhere. May justice, freedom and peace prevail. آمين يا رب العالمين
