Sevdaliza & Yasmine Hamdan - The Future Is Female
Tuesday, November 28th, 2017
The future is female - a phrase you can see on many tshirts nowadays. The slogan may not work for most major rock festivals yet, but thanks to the likes of Lorde, Solange, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift at least in pop music the future defintely is female. The phrase is taken from the book of feminist, activist and science-fiction author Sally Miller Gearhart, who, with her essay „The Future - if there is one - is Female“ gave the gender-discussion a new theme. This November two of the most exciting women, of these days, come together at Berghain under this motto: Yasmine Hamdan and Sevdaliza. Both border crossing artists will play a concert together - both a complete set, without the normal support band thing. Yasmine Hamdan is a singer, songwriter and actor - but these descriptions do not even come close. The Libanese is also a wanderer, ambassador and underground- icon. She lived in over 12 countries, built strong bridges between arabic folk music and modern western pop, was involved in Jim Jarmusch’ „Only Lovers Left Alive“ soundtrack and her first band Soapkills is often reffered to as „the first indie band from the Middle East". Her latest record „Al Jamilat“ was celebrated by critics and fans alike. Sevdaliza, who was born in Iran but lives in the Netherlands now, mixes fashion and art with her music and work. Her elaborate clip „Human“, in which she seems like a goddess, was the reason she was shown in magazines like Vogue. But be careful! Her electronic sound, her heart-rhythm bass and her fantastic voice have enough may get you addicted, to succumb to her.
