Interview with The City of DJinn, Playlist, 05-30-2020

Human Drama released a new single called Into Our Escape.

Chicago duo Marvan Kamel and Micah Bezold make up the musical group, City of DJinn. Their signature style, psychedelic drone rock draws from experimental music and traditional Arabic maqam and instruments such as the buzuq. This project is a collaboration spear headed by professor and scholar Mickey Weems with other Hawaii artists to produce a series of traditional Arabic songs, remixes, house music fusion, spoken words & interviews. House music DJ and producer Higher Concept (Hi-C), spoken words artist and musician Navid Najafi and promoter and radio personality DJ Nocturna will contribute their skills to this effort. City of DJinn Project is sponsored by the SEED IDEAS Grant program at University of Hawaii at Manoa,  Department of English at UH Manoa, KTUH FM Honolulu, Asylum After-hours and Asylum Academy of Music & the Arts.
