// ABOUT MUNMA

Jawad Nawfal is a pioneer of Lebanon’s electronic/dance scene. Starting out as a DJ and event promoter in the late 90’s, he eventually moved on to production and composition in the early 2000’s, forming live electronic duos Ae_Quo and AEX with Lebanese musician Victor Bresse. Nawfal created MUNMA in the aftermath of Israel’s war on Lebanon in the summer of 2006 — this solo project explores oriental harmonies and rhythmical patterns, with a strong reliance on sampled traditional musical beds and excerpts from politicians’ speeches and radio broadcasts. In 2012, Jawad started working with Lebanese writer and slam poet Mazen el-Sayed aka El Rass, and the two musicians released two well receivedalbums which explore the darker sides of rap, reconfiguring the genre to include elements of bass and electronica. In the following years, Nawfal collaborated with Belgian electronic producer Cedrik Fermont, and released 4 albums on his label Syrphe Records with different contributors.

// ABOUT FADI TABBAL

Fadi Tabbal is a musician, producer and sound engineer, known for his numerous contributions to Beirut’s alternative music scene by way of the specialized studio he opened in 2006, Tunefork.

Tabbal’s work as an engineer at Tunefork has secured its reputation as one of the most prominent studios in Beirut; the majority of the city’s alternative acts have passed through its doors. Fadi is a member of several Lebanese bands, including rock groups The Incompetents and Bunny Tylers, as well as experimental trio Under the Carpet. He collaborates frequently with singer/songwriter Youmna Saba, folk bands Safar and Ramly, and is a guest player on albums by experimental duo Praed and folk singer Sandmoon, among others. As a solo artist, he has released three albums entitled “On the Rooftop Looking Up” (Self-released 2013), “Museum of Disappearing Buildings” (Self-released 2015) and “How’s Annie” (Ruptured, 2016).
