One thought on “Artists

  1. Hello dear people of Rebel up

    I got your information from Womex page.

    My name is Marouf Majidi, originally from Iran, a Kurd now living in Finland, since 2005.
    I play tar and tanbour, compose and sing. I recorded an album ,we recorded at the Sibelius Academy studio in Musiikkitalo and the recording was mixed in Burbank, California, by a world class engineer, mr. Rich Breen ( We are very happy with all aspects of the outcome.

    Currently we are looking for someone to release the record, and your label seems like one of the best options.

    The origins of the project are Kurdish-Arabic, and the collaboration with Finns is probably unique, at least I don’t know anything quite like this. I’m guessing the best market and interest for this could actually be found in central Europe, to Mediterranean area and Middle East.

    Below you’ll find the band presentation text as well as a link to all tracks on the recording, as well as a couple of unpublished music videos of two of the tracks, confidentially for your ears/eyes…

    I hope you can find time to check out our recording. Tell me if it is something you’d be interested in talking more about and considering for a release.
