Shadia Mansour : Hip Hop Artist / Arab Female Activist



Some call her the Palestinian Erykah Badu but Shadia Mansour definitely got her spirit & her own unique style.

This Britishly born sensation has Arab Soul written all over. I would say her music is Global but she does of course gets influenced by the station of her origin which is Palestine.

She's a soldier with her live performance & passion for her origin - she fights for her identity & it shows!

REVOLT will get a chance to have an Interview with SHADIA soon Inshalla!

In the meanwhile - enjoy this tune

Lowkey - Long Live Palestine


Lowkey is a Poet, Playwright, Political Activist and award winning Hip Hop Artist who has received airplay on numerous major radio stations including BBC Radio 1, Capital FM, Kiss FM, Choice FM and BBC 1Xtra and toured internationally performing to crowds everywhere from Glastonbury and Trafalgar Square to Germany and Amsterdam.

Born 1986 at St. Georges Hospital in Tooting to a British father from Dover and an Arab mother, herself born in Baghdad. Lowkey is a much needed bridge between many different worlds. He first made his name at the age of 17, attending the open mic sessions which took place at the infamous Deal Real record shop on Carnaby Street, Central London in 2003. The first time he went, another MC by the name of Loki, who had previously been a regular at the weekly open mic, confronted him and they battled for use of the name. Lowkey was named the winner by the audience and other MC's present.

Interview with Revolt Coming to you real soon.

Peace

Mashrou' Leila



Recently I came across this amazing "project" that is based in Lebanon.
Mashrou' Laila which means "An Overnight Project" in English is making some serious noise People!

They are a perfect example of hard work & perseverance. It all started out like everything great we know - a small work shop in the American University Of Beirut (AUB). Its their dedication & serious talent not to mention their unique style what got them to be recognized throughout Lebanon & even the Middle East!

Somehow I always believed the LIVE shows are the true judge weather an artist is talented or not. I mean I always dream about watching Dave Mathew Band Live because I hear their Live shows are on another level & that brings me to Laila - I haven't seen Laila in concert yet; but I sure will soon. I've seen some videos & for me I love the passion that the guys bring out each in their own unique style given that the band has 7 members in which each does their job more than well to have a great end result!

On Dec 19th,2009 they launched their latest album in a concert in Beirut in which alot of people attended & enjoyed the performance with a copy of their Album! (id say go get a CD right now! if you into some original not fake music..)

REVOLT will have an interview with the guys from Mashrou' Leila & maybe a small performance :) "working on it"

Best of luck to the guys & stay real in this Fake Music Industry!

Enjoy this small Tune by ML.
