Describing their music as Electro Arabic Dabke – or Shamstep – 47SOUL emerged from Amman, Jordan in 2013, and the 4-piece have been blasting their sounds and relentless dance throughout the Arabic and European underground ever since. Now based in Bilad-a-Sham, their sound’s underpinned by classic, driving Arabic rhythm and beats, layers of analog synthesisers, hypnotic guitar lines and powerful, soul-fuelled vocals from all four members. With lyrics that mix Arabic and English, they call for celebration and freedom in the struggle for equality that’s evident throughout the world.
