Hailing from one of the most musically rich cities in the Levant, Hello Psychaleppo is the brain child of Aleppian music producer and visual artist Samer Saem Eldahr.
His groundbreaking first album “Gool Lʼah” released in 2013 pioneered the music genre of Electro-Tarab which VICE Magazine describes as “a pastiche of twitchy electronic sounds and golden age Arab pop music of the 1950s and 60s. It is alternately danceable and cathartic, melancholic and apocalyptic. Itʼs Massive Attack meets Abdel Halim Hafez.” With a string of successive releases, Hello Psychaleppo’s music is deeply rooted in Arabic music tradition, captivating listeners with melodic strains of Tarab threaded seamlessly together with elaborate and catchy electronic arrangements.
Hello Psychaleppoʼs compelling visual presentation is and integral part of his live performances, which will make its debut at the Jazz Cafe this May.
