Nomad SoundSystem

Zankel Hall

“music for closing the eyes and listening, for ecstatic dancing and rocking”—Skug (Vienna)

Nomad SoundSystem
With hard-hitting Western dance grooves and soulful North African raï melodies, Berlin-based Nomad SoundSystem mixes ethnic, electric, and eclectic sounds, appealing to club and world music audiences alike. Hailing from Tunisia, Algeria, Japan, and Berlin, the group’s members reflect the multicultural melting pot that is Berlin today.

The Berlin in Lights festival is made possible by a leadership gift from the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation.

Major funding has also been provided by Mercedes and Sid Bass, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from Martha and Bob Lipp, Fundación Mercantil (Venezuela), and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Additional funding provided by Axel Springer AG, GWFF USA Inc., and the Jerome Robbins Foundation.

Since coming together just four years ago, Nomad SoundSystem has already played alongside such kindred spirits as Rachid Taha, Nitin Sawhney, and Transglobal Underground—all of whom groove to an urbane beat.
