Dina El Wedidi – Slumber (Kirkelig Kulturverksted, 2018)
Egyptian artist Dina El Wedidi is known as a vocalist, composer and percussionist who performs world music rooted in Egyptian tradition. Her new album Slumber takes her in a totally new direction.
On Slumber, Dina El Wedidi enters the world of electronic music and sound experimentation in the studio. For two years, she worked with the sounds from various Egyptian train stations, people in the streets and moving trains, including train whistles. The result is a set of electronically processed music featuring ambient music layers, trance-like percussion generated by trains and Dina El Wedidi’s dream-like vocals.
Slumber is a transfixing, masterfully-crafted and accessible experimental album by the multifaceted Egyptian artist Dina El Wedidi.
