Jam Packed return for a spring of epic proportions. After our spectacular run of autumn/winter events, we're very excited to announce the first gig on our Spring bill - 47SOUL with support from Bliss Zion.
47SOUL : The music of 47SOUL combines Palestinian street music, hip hop and electro, fusing deep electronic beats with sounds of the Middle East.
On top of the beats that have been bumping in the Middle East for centuries, 47SOUL hypes it up with analog synthesizers, dub-effects, hypnotic guitar lines. Their lyrics , delivered in tripped-out, shattering verses by four singers in a mixture of Arabic and English, call for freedom of movement on global dance floors and across border checkpoints.
The members are rooted in Bilad Al-Sham, spanning the divides from Amman to the Galilee, the Golan Heights to Ramallah. This new sound of 47SOUL has rapidly amassed fans all over the globe and on the world stage, blasting the electric Arabic debka sound through underground music scenes.
Every show ends in relentless dance and trance from all parties involved. A celebration of freedom and the struggle for equality around the world.
