Eden Zane w/ Wake Island (DJ set)
EDEN ZANE returns to The Sultan Room! Come join for a set with Eden and his band, followed by DJ set from Wake Island.
Eden Zane is a vocalist & songwriter aiming to electrify the live Arabic music scene in NYC’s dance halls. His shows combine dance-pop hits, mesmeric Arabic tarab, original music, and an ensemble of stellar musicians. His smooth baritone vocals convey “romance, elegance, and gusto” (The New York Times) and are marked by warm sensuality.
Wake Island is an electronic producer duo originally from Beirut and now based between Montreal and New York. Through their music, they attempt to reconcile their Arab roots with their North American lives, infusing Middle-eastern sounds into songs that are inspired by Detroit techno and 80-90s pop/rock. Their DJ sets offer a fresh perspective on Arabic music blending some of the most innovative electronic tracks with more traditional popular songs and old/rare cuts. They also co-founded LayLit, a NYC-based regional party that celebrates the diversity of music from the Middle-East/North Africa region and its diaspora.
