Nadin Al khalidi fled from Iraq in 2001 arriving to Sweden as a refugee. Her lyrics merge political and social topics along with questions around identity, survival and love; always striving for peace and tolerance between the different cultures. It also paves the way to Tarabband’s Arabic young audience to relate and connect with Nadin’s lyrics in a way that is relevant with the current challenges young people are facing in the Middle East. Whether it’s Iraqi, Egyptian, or Swedish, Nadin celebrates her triple identity, a mix that is culturally rich.
During 2018 Tarabband established a musical collaboration with Swedish Musica Vitae Chamber Orchestra/Musik i Syd. There will be an album release with material from their liveconcert recorded at Palladium Malmö, read more about it here:
Tarabband's album Ashofak Baden
