Saout Radio & Deena Abdelwahed
10/05/2016 - 20:30 - 6€

Saout Radio est une plateforme et webradio initiée par les artistes Younes Baba-Ali et Anna Raimondo au Maroc en 2012, aujourd’hui curatée par Anna Raimondo avec la complicité de Francesca Masoero à la production et Chloé Despax à la communication, avec le soutien de Openvizor. Forme d’archive vivante rassemblant plus de 100 artistes invités et difusés, la webradio de Saout Radio se présente ainsi comme une vitrine sonore, ainsi qu’un espace de réfexion, production et difusion d’art audio dans diférents contextes et géographies, avec une approche post-colonialiste.

Issuing from the Tunisian alternative music scene, with strong foundations as a funk and jazz singer, Deena Abdelwahed has been exploring the realm of electronic music since 2011. With her proposed project, “All Hail Mother Internet”, Abdelwahed asks “How would I have ended up without having access to internet when I was a teenager?” as a starting point to explore frustrations about feeling fixed by the constraints of a pre-defined culture, place, identity, and the strategies employed to tackle them – be it by either simply defending the believed identity, or being deafened by loneliness after consuming endless art and ideas online. Taking off from her personal memories as a teen living in a conservative Muslim country and the hopes and upheaval of the Arab Spring, Abdelwahed blends her own interpretations of Arabic popular music repertoire with a vision of a futuristic club scene and its global aspirations.
