Matar, the Arabic name of 'Rain', it started when the Syrian percussionist Ali Hasan and Oud player Nabil Arbain have met in 2015 through their waiting time in a refugees camp in Frankfurt Oder, later on they started to play traditional Arabic music and composed music by Nabil, they started mixing classical western music with new rhythms from their region to create kind of new identity.
2017 Simon Schmidt joined the group with his guitar, vocal and his electronic world, Simon brought with him a new flavor to the group with an original western spirit. MATAR is a package of different musical backgrounds touched by Berlin vibes.
... is an old Bedouin name and it means the sun.
Shamsa, a Middle Eastern embodiment of the feminine mystical, oracle, queens of the desert. The nomadic Bedouin warrior queens. The women that had most wisdom. The beautiful, resilient, strong and free goddesses. Shamsa has been DJing for a little over 2 years now between the region and Berlin.
... is a Tunisian DJ and filmmaker based in Berlin. He is a dedicated digger of the African and Oriental sounds spectrum. His mixes are like a film with a smooth storytelling, shifting angles and perspectives with a constant reflection to his motherland.
We Belong to Music
We are a non-profit platform that aims to offer workshops & Jam sessions and music events as a (circle to exchange knowledge, skills) in Berlin. WBTM was born in the international space of Baynatna ( the Arabic library in Berlin ) as a wish to exchange experiences by proposing collective artistic activities. Taking a place in a variable locations of the city as well in the library itself, the workshops give ones the opportunity to share with the audience their musical and other artistic skills, while the jam sessions, as the same implies, are musical meetings everyone can take part in and participate in the common creation of a musical theory.
