AF THE NAYSAYER (New Orleans, USA) and BAHR (Hamburg, GERMANY) connected on
Twitter and later became friends with Bluechan (Seoul, SOUTH KOREA) via Facebook. A
collaboration which was only possible through the magic of the internet. Three friends who enjoy creating music and feel like there should be no cultural or sonic boundaries. We collaborate and we combine our stories, our roots and our sound. Finally we share a Stage together at Zandari Festa. We are happy to be supported by local rappers HALO & Annteest. Join Us!
AF THE NAYSAYER: Amahl Abdul-Khaliq is AF THE NAYSAYER - a flourishing producer in the electronic and instrumental hip-hop world. Within the last two years this New Orleans-based, Los Angeles-bred producer has dispersed his atmospheric productions across 70 cities and at over 300 shows in the US alone. His sound has been categorized as “electrifying soul-hop” whose core is best described by Atlanta producer DISTAL as, “Layered, intelligent design with a simple and easily digestible delivery.” His collaborations in New Orleans have led him to become the ambassador for Red Bull Music Academy, as well as the founder of beatmaker showcase Dolo Jazz Suite. AF has toured with artists such as Durazzo, Prism House, and Sports Coach, and has opened for Glitch Mob, Om Unit, Quantic, Lapalux, Young Fathers, and the 2016 Mad Decent BUKU Party (feat: Yellow Claw, NGHTMRE, Louis The Child, and Jazz Cartier).
BAHR: Creating and sharing soundscapes. Visualizing thoughts and emotions. Reaching out, connecting. Journeyman. Traces of modal soul. My beats and compositions are like diary entries. A digital native in this analogue world in transition. BAHR.
