Dina El Wedidi

Even though she’s still considered a “rising” artist, the 28-year old singer-songwriter Dina El Wedidi (دينا الوديدي‎) has already made her name as one of the most fascinating voices in the Arabic scene.

“Dawayer” (دواير), meaning “Circles”, is one of many songs showing that she deserves the applause.

Her new album “Turning Back” was recorded in Cairo, but mixed in Oslo. Combining modern, avant-garde and traditional music – and instruments like kawala, arghoul, lyra and bouzouki with electric bass, guitars, accordion and drums – she presents a thoroughly unique style promising even more to come.
