DiverseCity: Najwa


The New York-based Najwa – or Najwa Mahiaddin – continues to be remarkable, recasting her music in a myriad of ways; the singer-songwriter began her career in neo-soul, R&B form in 2011, before 2014’s ‘Aurora’, which blends bare electronics with Arabic and Indian-influenced elements. ‘Seri Mersing’, for example, percolates into passion; the ancestral Malay folk song is given the Najwa treatment with avant-garde, ferocious electro beats, paced by ominous vocals. Have a soft drink on the house when you bring along the September 2015 issue of Time Out KL. One copy of the issue entitles you to one drink
