Awakenings Summer Festival
Fafi Abdel Nour
The Syrian born and Groningen-based Fafi Abdel Nour has been a steady house-hold name at OOST. Next to holding down the fort in OOST as a resident, he is co-founder of the queer night HOMOOST. The night that became known for breaking down barriers with a colourful approach up there in the North.
Sound-wise, Fafi Abdel Nour doesn’t adhere to all the waves of electronic music and no we don’t do cliché’s. Instead, you can find him pushing a sound undetermined and in no way restrained, as it is unmistakably refreshing and decided. Deep and organic but accompanied by dramatic melodies, Italian rarities, disco and beyond.
With a stand-out set at De School just recently, Fafi Abdel Nour has been quickly carving his way to the top, putting Groningen on the map as well as being part of that new generation busy names on the national circuit.
