Let’s Unite With Music

These workshops are dedicated to connecting refugees to the Twin Cities’ vibrant music scene.

Our project will introduce them to the world of music production, enabling them to not only start creating their own tracks, but giving them the skills and knowledge to continue making their own music once the workshop has ended.

The goal of this program is to create opportunities for these students to share their own culture and creativity through music. With the help of the instructor, Syrian-born Zimo, participants in this program will be shown through example that not only is their artistic voice welcome in the Twin Cities, but their contribution to our musical landscape is a vital component to it.

Free workshop. All experience levels and all ages are welcome!

About The Instructor: Samer Saem Eldahar (Zimo / Hello Psychaleppo)

Hailing from one of the most mystical and musically rich cities in the Levant, Hello Psychaleppo is deeply rooted in oriental music tradition.

Hello Psychaleppo is the electronic music project of the young Syrian producer Samer Saem Eldahr (AKA Zimo). He made his mark, with his unique and experimental sound. He uses melodies of the Arab bedouin “Mawwals” and the ecstatic strains of tarab, and threads it through convoluted, industrial structures made from dubstep, drum & bass, electro and trip-hop. He creates a journey away from boundaries of style, engaging souls into letting go while experiencing a new dimension of sonic blends.
