Arts Canteen presents : Maryam Saleh & Zeid Hamdan

Maryam & Zeid’s work together includes original music by both artists, alongside covers of classic Arabic songs, including Maryam’s personal inspiration, Sheikh Imam, a friend of her father and who she knew well growing up.

Maryam Saleh

A major creative force and a powerful voice for her generation, Egyptian singer and songwriter Maryam Saleh composes and performs music that is personal, political and philosophical; intense, intelligent Egyptian music with Arabic language and influences of Trip Hop and Psych Rock.

In the past year, Maryam has played widely across the Arab World. In Egypt she has performed at venues including El Genaina Theater and Bibliotheca Alexandrina, where she launched her album Mesh Baghanny (‘I don’t sing’) in 2012. Maryam has appeared at the Palestine International Festival in Ramallah, and in Jordan and the Lebanon. She also takes part in projects with musicians from around the Arab World, including Zeid Hamdan (Lebanon), Tamer Abu Ghazaleh (Palestine) and Maurice Louca (Egypt).

Zeid Hamdan

A Lebanese music composer. He was born in Beirut in 1976. At the age of 12 began his musical journey as a true vagabond. Today, Hamdan is the true face of Lebanese underground music and trip hop.

He rose to fame through the projects like Soapkills, Shift Z, Kazamada and several other artistic collaborations that have led him to be known as the ‘Father of the Lebanese underground’. He’s even been jailed for defamation charges against Lebanese president General Suleiman in his song ‘Go home, Suleiman!’ which received widespread acknowledgement online.

Marc Codsi

Marc has been indispensable in the proliferation and development of the fledgling Lebanese music scene as it exists today. His eclectic ventures, from film scores, playing the guitar for the band Scrambled Eggs, Zeid and the Wings, and creating the electro pop ensemble Lumi, have rendered him irreversibly distinguishable. His creation of an instantly recognisable and evocative sound underlines daring new perspectives.
