Habibi Funk: A Celebration of Funk, Soul, Psychedelic Music from the Arab World

East Wing with German DJ and musicologist of rare vinyl Jannis Stürz, present a celebration of the record label Habibi Funk. Shining a light on older music from the Arab world from rare photographs, biographies, memorabilia, films and live performance, the musical gems have been collected from record stores from around the world to retrieve and preserve long lost funk recordings from the Middle East. The aim of the exhibition is to reconnect both young and old audiences to the music by developing a series of compilations featuring eclectic selections of the greatest Arab icons from the 1960’s through the 80’s, including some performances that were never released before, believed to be musical legends.
