Deena Abdelwahed will drop 'Dhakar' in January

Tunisian DJ and producer Deena Abdelwahed will release a new EP on January 17, 2020 — titled 'Dhakar' (which translates from Arabic to English as "the male or masculine") — via French imprint InFiné Music

The four-tracker is the artist's first release since February's 'Tawa Remixes', and her first original material since her debut album 'Khonnar', which was released last year.

Like her previous work, 'Dhakar' showcases Abdelwahed's knack for fusing Arabic and Tunisian musical references, such as the nod to Stambeli rituals on 'Ah'na Hakkeka', with club music.
