Shubbak Festival Concerts at Barbican HallFollowing its successful inaugural edition two years ago, the Mayor of London's Shubbak Festival (22nd June - 6th July) - the city's celebration of contemporary Arab art and culture - returns to the Barbican with an opening double bill at the Hall on 22nd June that brings together two of Algeria's most outspoken musical rebels, Rachid Taha and Souad Massi. Taha is an activist rocker whose ninth studio album included cameos by Mick Jones of The Clash, Agnes B and Eric Cantona, while Massi has been hailed as Maghreb's answer to Tracy Chapman, crossing genres while persevering with a wistful penchant for melancholic ballads. A second Shubbak (meaning 'window' in Arabic) concert sees Lebanese singer and oud player Marcel Khalifé and his Al Mayadeen Ensemble team up on 29th June.
