It is people’s choice if they see cultural diversity as a threat or as an enrichment. It was not Salah Ammos choice to leave his home Syria because of the war, but he choose to get in touch with local musicians when he settled down in Vienna in 2013, to enrich his art, which is mostly shaped by the deep heritage of oriental music and poetry Read More…
Salah Ammo founded in 2017 Dabke Dilan, in which he presents a mesmerizing beat-driven glimpse of Syria`s modern folkloric dance music featuring a variety of acoustic and electronic instrumentalists. Since early 2019 the studio works are shaped by keyboardist Rizan Said and the Austrian producer Moritz Scharf alias Aramboa.
Dabke Dilan`s music was mainly inspired by “Oriental Electronic Sha’bi Style” where the music is shaped by fast rhythms and oriental synthesizer-sounds. Now they re-arrange Sha’bi as club music creating a unified musical language and making the term electronic world music a bridge between traditional kurdish and arabic folk dance and techno-rave parties.
Dabke Dilan, the name already expresses a lot – dance means Dabke in arabic and Dilan in kurdish – so it is about pure dance music. Beside their own compositions, they bring together different traditional music of Middle East and fuse new playful rhythms into electronic music. Dabke Dilan easily moves between fast and slow tempos, creating a musical space where body movements and emotions can meet. They fill the room with the energy, spirit and joy of Arabic Dabke, Kurdish Dilan and Club Music. In their concerts the crowd is dancing crazily to their powerful beats and flying high to virtuose ethnic instrumental solos. Read More..
