About the event


Saint Levant, born Marwan Abdelhamid, is a Palestinian/French/Algerian/Serbian artist based in California. Levant is the son of a French/Algerian mother, and a Palestinian/Serbian father with whom he speaks French natively. He was born in Jerusalem during the second Intifada due to complications in the city where he would eventually spend his childhood years - the Gaza Strip. In 2007, him and his family were forced to flee to Jordan following the outbreak of a civil war in the Strip, where he spent more than 10 years before moving to California to pursue higher education. Currently, he is finishing up his bachelors degree in International Relations at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Saint Levant's career started with the help of TikTok and Instagram, where he has amassed around 120,000 followers and hundreds of millions of views. His first single "Jerusalem Freestyle" was released in late 2020 and garnered hundreds of thousands of streams, followed up by an even bigger success - "Nirvana in Gaza". After that, the 21 year old struggled with maintaining a balance between his startup company connecting Palestinians in the diaspora to investment opportunities, university obligations, content creation, political activism, podcasting and personal life - which led to scattered musical output. However, late 2021 and early 2022 has seen him dedicate himself to his childhood dream of becoming an artist, releasing over 10 singles and performing live for the first time ever.

Bayou is a genre-bending vocalist whose surreally eclectic sound nurtures a fine mix of Middle Eastern heritage, laden with Pop and R&B aura witnessed through its unorthodox, yet soulful rhythms. In late 2019, Bayou dropped his first single Moonlight inspired by the enticing belly dancers of Egypt; which was later recognized by Colorsxstudios, L’Officiel, and GQ Middle East. Since then he’s gone on to make other Arab-infused tracks such as King Of Cairo and Casablanca.

“Growing up around the Middle East, and constantly moving around the world, living in the face of both visual and conceptual fusion offered me an outlet for creative musical expression.”
