Mixtape #66

This month mixtape has been hand-picked by the inventive and inspiring artist and music producer Zahed Sultan. Here are a few words about the mix from Zahed himself:

"As a multimedia artist, I find myself inspired by places and spaces. This inspiration has, fortunately, allowed me the opportunity to explore various parts of our world – all the while digging and immersing myself into sub-cultures. And, in turn, sharing a piece of my own expression with said people(s).
This is a collection of songs that have recently been the soundtrack to my late night walks down empty streets in various cities - while on tour with the ‘eyeamsound experience’."

The groovy ‘Hakatha’ is the first of three singles to be shared that has now emerged. The track is a rework from an original release of his 2012 Reuse Me EP. Known for his entrepreneurial projects and commitment to the environment and social causes, ‘Hakatha’ is also inspired by social events. It “pays tribute to the social frustrations that have plagued the Middle East region prior to the Arab Spring and thereafter”, as the press release says. “In classical spoken-word Arabic, the narrator calls upon Arab people to stand in unity, against tyranny, with a sense of civic pride.” Listen to ‘Hakatha’ below.
