If you’re a regular visitor to this blog, you’ll know we love our Middle Eastern and North African music. Well, we’ve just discovered a website called Mideast Tunes, which says it is the ultimate platform for discovery of underground musicians in the Middle East and North Africa, particularly those working for social change. They say this:
“Our mission is to bridge barriers of faith and geography to unite people committed to fostering constructive discourse in the region through music. The core of the project manifested from our desire to promote bands and musicians that would otherwise never be given a second glance in the international scene. We feel that is because most people would never think to look to regions like the Middle East and North Africa for highly thought provoking music. The need to change that is our driving force.
We believe music can change the world and that the musicians of the Middle East and North Africa will lead the way.
Founded in 2010 in Bahrain, the site has expanded to serve as a primary resource for discovering up and coming Middle Eastern talents.”
There’s an app. There’s a blog. There’s a lot of amazing music.
