Surrounded by many borders, Mr Raz Mesinai transcends them all. No matter what obstacle we have to tackle or enemies we may need to defeat. The occasional overbearing emotions that cramp us all can be shaken out of our system. We can do so with the powerful sounds Badawi propels forwards. Possessing submarine like basses low down in muscles we were unaware of, a motley crew of percussion and melodies that frenetically swirl us around like a Haboob dust storm, we are boldly resisting the mundane and mainstream. Down with capitalism! Down with consumerism! We are the nomads, the Bedouin spilling out like such diaspora.
Born in Jerusalem, Raz Mesinai spent two decades traversing between his homeland and New York City experiencing traditional Middle Eastern music and ecstatic hip-hop and the underground electro of NYC. His mixture of dub, classical composition, avant-garde and electro-acoustic music is sincere, upbeat and fundamental. I dare you to keep up with him.
