Psychedelic Desert Funk from Berlin!

JAMILA & THE OTHER HEROES is a wild Berlin based band from manywhere that creates Psychedelic Desert Funk to make you fly. Leading the band is the vibrant Jamila Al-Yousef. Born in Berlin on the day the wall came down, and raised by her influential Palestinian refugee father, Jamila’s cultural activism and strong will to positively change the world is drawn deep into her artistic expression. After touring in Germany, the Middle East and North Africa in the past three years, the band's raw, concentrated energy manifests in their debut album "SIT EL KON. ست الكون“ (The Grandmother of the Universe), recently released on SPRINGSTOFF records and funded by German Music Export Office Initiative Musik.

SIT EL KON sounds like a boundless dream. It takes listeners on a furious journey through unconscious galaxies which unite us with the experiences and spirits of our ancestors that continue to exist on this planet in the here and now. Jamila’s at times soft and at other times emphatic voice harmonically weaves itself through dense and eclectic yet always optimistic sounding compositions. Her emancipatory lyrics in Arabic and English invite listeners to show mutual empathy.

Let yourself be carried away by an incomparable sound of psychedelic guitar riffs, vibrating on a warm and earthy fundament of wavy bass runs and Arab percussion sounds, as well as heavy hip hop und rock influenced drum beats. The dance floor JAMILA & THE OTHER HEROES create is a breeding ground for people to meet and practise togetherness - the musicians’ response to the currently operating exclusion mechanisms of our time.

The message of the band is simple: “All of us can be Heroes! Let’s discover our super powers and make the world a better place.“
