An introduction to the Alternative Arab music scene
Music is the only language in the world that doesn’t need translation. The Bridge is the show that presents a different side of the Arab culture through alternative Arabic music, a side that many people, even Arabs, don’t know about. The artists featured are from all over the Arab world combining traditional Arabic motifs with pop, rock, hip hop, jazz, rap, techno and much more to create a new identity.
The Bridge is a platform for a new generation of Arabs from all over the world who have a voice that needs to be heard. These artists will build a bridge between different cultures to overcome the stereotypes and create a new identity and to show a different side of the Arab culture that people didn’t know existed.
