Together they play a colorful mix of contemporary Iraqi music styles, such as chobi chobi, dabke, maqam and everything around it. In September 2018 they released their debut album ‘Habibi’. Since then they have been touring in the Netherlands, Belgium and France.

The Syrian producer Mouneer Bu Kolthoum, better known as Bu Kolthoum, knew at a young age that he wanted to make music. Born in Damascus in 1991 in a musical family with a Sufi background, he was first inspired by Tarab music and other spiritual new age genres. Only recently he added hip hop and RnB, which led to new genres such as Sufi-hop. As a producer, he collaborates with artists from all over the world. He toured with Damon Albarn (from Blur) & The Orchestra of Syrian Musicians and already played at big festivals like Roskilde and Holland Festival.
