Launching both the 14th Annual Small World Music Society Festival and the 7th Annual The Toronto Palestine Film Festival, an Arabic music party featuring the Toronto debut of one the most exciting new acts from the Middle East!

47SOUL is a young Palestinian / Jordanian band that was formed in 2012 when four inspiring young solo artists joined forces from different regions: El Fari (MC, darbouka), Z The People (keys, vocals), Walaa Sbeit (MC, daf) and El Jihaz (guitar, vocals). It is rare to see a band gain such a passionate following to rapidly, a testament to their music making and the message behind the music. Laying down Arabic Reggae, Hip Hop, and Mijwez solos overtop of Debka, Rai, and Afrobeat grooves, this is real revolution party music.

This new electro-mijwez, shamstep, choubi sound has rapidly amassed fans in the Middle East and Europe, blasting the electric Arabic vibe through underground music scenes. On top of beats that have been bumping in the Middle East for centuries, 47SOUL hypes it up with analog synthesizers, hypnotic guitar lines, and shattering verses mixing Arabic and English from the four singers.

Overcoming physical and logistical challenges, they came together to play electronic Palestinian street music. 47SOUL writes and performs to speak about freedom of movement, whether that’s sparking new dance styles or singing about breaking down border check points. For the past 2 years the band has based itself between Jordan and the UK, to spread their new wave of Arabic music.
