LAAF 2018 – Emel Mathlouthi

Liverpool Arab Arts Festival’s (LAAF) enhanced musical programme will enjoy a spectacular opening weekend with a performance from internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter and the “voice of the Tunisian revolution”, Emel Mathlouthi on Saturday 7 July at the Invisible Wind Factory. Emel’s genre-defying music melds electronica and Tunisian textures into her unique cinematic universe, blending acoustic and electronic sounds into a style wholly her own and drawing together Tunisian instruments such as gumbri (bass lute), zukra (flute) and bendirs (frame drums) with heavy kick drums and atmospheric melodies.
