31st of January ARTIFICIALIA presents:
LIVE at 21:00
On December 6th, the German-Syrian band Shkoon will release their long-awaited debut album “Rima”,
sending out a message of cultural diversity to the world. Shkoon’s concerts have attracted a diverse
audience for many years, bringing together people of all religions, colors and backgrounds.
Musically, the album is situated between influences of electronic downbeat, deep house, dub and hip-hop.
The band members Ameen, Thorben and Maher come from a variety of different musical backgrounds and have created their very own sound with a mix of influences between the Arabic and Western world. Piano, violin, synthesizers, percussion and vocals merge oriental melodies with western electronic beats, taking the listener on a journey that blurs the boundaries of cultures. This fusion of different styles results in a kind of music that takes you away, no matter where you are from. Sometimes it´s deep, sometimes it´s mellow. It can make you dream and it can make you weep. Dance and sing with joy or close your eyes and feel what lies beneath.
Shkoon is more than a German-Syrian live act with Arabic lyrics. In addition to their own lyrics, the
band uses traditional musical folklore elements of the Arab community, which today appear more
relevant than ever. The title song of the debut album is inspired by a story from Arabic folklore, in which a mother tells peaceful tales to her child as the world sinks into chaos. This song is
accompanied by the singer and rapper Tareq Abu Kwaik, also known as "El Far3i", by the band 47Soul.

To create an unique sound landscape we created a thought of bringing contemporary and futuristic electronica and combine it with harmonistic ambient organica and digital visualization. We have handpicked specific acts from around the world to join us for this specific project together with the best locals support acts from Stockholm to enhance these special nights.
This concept was given the names of ARTIFICIALIA, a mix of art, music and culture that we bring to you as unique late night sets at Studio Live and your favorite museum, Fotografiska.
