Deena Abdelwahed

After her beginnings in a jazz band and multiple interventions in the electronic scene in Tunis, the Tunisian producer and DJ moved to France in 2016. She signed on the Parisian label InFiné and released two EPs, “Klabb” (2017) and “Dhakar” (2020) and an album entitled “Khonnar” (2018), acclaimed by several international media such as Pitchfork and The Guardian.
Her musical explorations are hopeful attempts to reclaim the elements that make up the diversity of Arabic music, drawing inspiration from electronic dance music influenced by Club music and the current avant-garde and experimental scene. She co-produced the track “an itch” that appears on Fever Ray’s latest album, “Plunge” and has produced several remixes of Bachar Mar-Khalifé, Flore, Domenico Torti and Afrika Bambaataa, among others. She has also collaborated with the dance community, asked by Alexandre Roccoli to write and perform the music for Weaver in 2017.
In Live set or DJ set, Deena Abdelwahed has performed on stage in several festivals and events of renown such as Sonar Festival twice, Les Dunes Electroniques in Tunisia, CTM Festival in Berlin, Dekmantel in Amsterdam, Dour festival or Mutek Festival in Mexico City and clubs such as Concrete and Dehors Brut in Paris, the Berghain in Berlin and Mutabor in Moscow, among others…”
