Shkoon

Shkoon established themselves as one of the most thrilling breakthrough acts of the Arab electronica scene, fusing Arabic styled instrumentation and Western electro, creating an atmosphere filled with texture and spice to blow their audience away.

“We feel good with performing live, improvising on stage and interacting with people. We love to spread positivity around, just to proof that music is the true key of peace! “

Ameen and Thorben met by coincidence in Hamburg. They come from different musical backgrounds and developed their own signature mixing Arabic scales and traditional folk songs with classical harmonic structures – Oriental melodies partner up with occidental electronics.

This fusion of different styles results in a sound that takes you away, no matter where you are from. At times strong and powerful, at others soothing and mellow. It can make you dream and it can make you weep. Dance and sing with joy or close your eyes and feel what lies beneath.

In 2019, Shkoon released their long-awaited debut album Rima, sending out a message of cultural diversity to the world and landing them a worldwide album tour that included sold-out shows in Beirut, London, Paris, Berlin, and Hamburg.

This year they have released the live album FIRAQ mixed with live interpretations of previously released singles, re-interpretations of renowned Arabic classics, a live remix and four original tracks.

Shkoon’s concerts have attracted a diverse audience for many years, bringing together people of all religions, colours and backgrounds.
