Deena Abdelwahed

Coming from the Tunisian alternative music scene, Deena injects a dose of innovation and experimentation in Electro Dance Music in Tunisia.

By combining urban rhythms and personal touch, it offers avant-garde music particularly energetic. She debuted as funk and jazzsinger by accompanying jazzman Fawzi Chekili and the group “So Soulful”, then joined the World Full Of Bass DJs collective in 2011, and just before moving to Toulouse/France the next year, she was involved with Arabstazy’s artists and performed live sets in numerous European and north African cities.

Independent today, and supported by artists as Acid Arab, Morphosis, Bachar Mar-Khalifé or Debruit. Her upcoming first album with Infiné Music Label in Paris is set to be released this winter.

At Sound of Stockholm 2016 Deena will presents her award-winning radio art performance All Hail Mother Internet.
Who would I be if there was no Internet? Searching for an answer to this question, Deena Abdelwahed has developed a semi-theatrical radio art performance that tells of the everyday conflicts between Tunisia’s Generation Y and their parents, of fragile and vulnerable young identities in the field of tension between traditional Islam and modern Western lifestyle.

All Hail Mother Internet was one of two works commissioned by Deutschlandradio Kultur and CTM Festival 2016.
