- Shamstep with razor-sharp lyrics and political messages

More than a decade ago, the Palestinian music collective 47Soul created a musical movement based on an innovative pan-Arab genre, political awareness and a clear message of freedom and dignity for all people.

The genre they created was called "shamstep", a blend of dabke folk music, shaabi folk dance music, electronica, hip hop and dubstep, and always with a political message. In doing so, 47Soul laid the foundations for the new Arab party music that both looks hopefully to the future, but also nurtures its historical roots and draws inspiration from the traditional dabke genre, which has historically served as both party and protest music.

47Soul is known for creating huge parties and is guaranteed to get the whole of Rådhusplassen moving to their raw beats, psychedelic synths, catchy melodies and groove. Their powerful lyrics in English and Arabic about equality and freedom seem more important than in a very long time.
