Eden Cami and the KAYAN Project

Fri, 13. Aug // 20:00, Literarisches Colloquium Berlin (Am Sandwerder 5, 14109 Berlin)

Live event

Out of Berlin’s bustling music scene come the authentic-unique sounds of KAYAN, a group dedicated to folk music from the Levant, combining jazz elements and singing in languages that rarely come together in a positive context: Arabic, Hebrew and the occasional English. Drawing from sources all over the Middle East, the quartet around lead singer Eden Cami transcends borders and language barriers. Adding improvisation and own compositions, Kayan creates a fascinating and emotional vibe on stage, reuniting two sister languages and musical traditions of both Arab and Jewish roots. In times of tension and conflict it is a daringly positive approach that recalls what unites rather than divides us.

Eden Cami and the KAYAN Project will bring together enchanting sounds, melodies and poetry from the Middle East. The band sways lightly between folk and pop, traditional music and originals from the Levant while the lead singer transcends borders and unites the two sister languages, Arabic and Hebrew, in place and time.
