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

Saout Radio is a platform and a web radio initiated by the artists Younes Baba-Ali and Anna Raimondo in Morocco in 2012. Today it is curated by Anna Raimondo with the complicity of Francesca Masoero and Chloé Despax with the support of Openvizor. As an evolving archive, reuniting more than 100 artists invited and difused, the web radio aims at being both a sonic display and a space for refection, production and difusion of sound art works coming from diferent contexts and geographies by endorsing a postcolonial approach.

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.

This work was created within the framework of the CTM 2016 Radio Lab. Supported by Deutschlandradio Kultur – Hörspiel/Klangkungs and CTM Festival, in collaboration with Goethe-Institut, ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen Herbst, Ö1 Kunstradio, the SoCCoS – the Sound of Culture, the Culture of Sound, and the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union)
