Rasha Nahas

Aya Metwalli 


Korben & Leelee

and more. 

Rasha Nahas, Singer/songwriter, guitarist and performance artist. Her unmistakable sound and unique artistic identity were born and shaped in the Palestinian underground scene in her home town "Haifa"; fabrics of electric guitars combined with classical technique, with a penchant for fierce yet intimate storytelling carrying bold, unabashed poetry and howling violins.

Aya Metwali, Egyptian singer/songwriter, composer and producer who makes way for the influences of all the Egyptian pop as well as the classics she listened to growing up to leak out of her subconsciousness and find their way onto a bedding of what she calls "strange sounds coming out of synthesizers and drum machines. She defines her music as experimental pop or avant-pop.

ArchAngel, Al Sammour's Brothers "Manar & Faris", Both are Techno DJ-Producers from Damascus. they express their thoughts, imaginations and dreams through deep, melodic and ethereal Techno music productions.

Korben & Leelee, DJ & VJ Duo from Eindhoven. Started their collaboration two years ago at a radio show and ended up as audio visual creators. “What we actually do is translate the way we experience the world within and around us. We communicate this through the techno music that we select and the video art that we create”

Raqs is an event organizing group aiming to support talents and create full musical, visual and atmospheric experiences for art appreciators. "Raqs" is an Arabic word that in English means "dance", we believe that whether it is letting go completely, swaying with the sounds or the dance of your heart and stomach when experiencing beauty, dance had been essential in human ways of interaction since way back. We find pleasure in creating -with the help of many more- mind, guts and body dance.

This event is made possible by - Stichting Pera - Paradiso Amsterdam and supported by AFK.

How to get to Paradiso

Paradiso is on the Weteringschans 6-8 in Amsterdam. That is very close to Leidseplein. From every part of the city there are trams heading towards Leidseplein. From there on out you can walk to Paradiso. Free and secured underground bike parking is available on the opposite side of Paradiso. Travelling by car is difficult, since there are only a few busy parking lots nearby.
