Fusing slithery melodies with groovy whirling synths, Jordanian trio Zaed Naes is crafting a unique space for itself in the Middle Eastern underground music scene. With Basel Naouri on synth and trumpet, Amjad Shahrour on bass, and Ammar Urabi on drums, Zaed Naes is blending contemporary electronic sounds and structures with regionally-influenced Arabic styles into a unique audiovisual project that is dark yet playful, moody yet fun, soulful yet wild. Guided by a desire to stretch existing musical and geographical boundaries, Zaed Naes cultivates its blended sound through collaborations with guest vocalists from across the Middle East.
