It's impossible to know just what to expect when you get Fatima Al Qadiri tickets but you can be that it will involve dancing, thinking and questioning any preconceived notions you might have.
Fatima Al Qadiri will be playing in Vienna, Austria, Antwerp, Belgium, and Bergen, Norway and then taking her act to the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris. Other upcoming shows including two nights at the Club to Club Festival in Torino, Italy and dates in Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. She'll then be presented to the art world at two major venues -- Art Basel in Miami, followed by The Guggenheim Museum in Abu Dhabi.
As a visual and multimedia artist, she has exhibited at venues including New York's MOMA's PS1, the Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art in Beijing, Sultan Gallery in Kuwait and Banner Repeater in London. She has also written about art and culture for major journals including Frieze, Bidoun and DIS.
Fatima Al Qadiri was born in Dakar, Senegal and raised in Kuwait. She moved to the United States to study at the University of Miami before transferring to complete her degree in Linguistics at New York University, where she graduated with her B.A. in 2003. Between her world travels as an internationally successful musician and artist she has stayed based in Brooklyn.
Fatima Al Qadiri's music has been heavily influenced by grime and the legacy of IDM, or intelligent dance music. She comes from the art world and is relatively new to dance music production but her splash on the scene has been immediate. Her music is meditative and powerful, often carrying influences from her life and her socio-cultural interests.
Fatima Al Qadiri began garnering major attention shortly after she began publicly releasing original and remixed music in 2011. In 2012, The New York Times described her music as "morose, ominous, moving," while the influential pop critic Sashe Frere-Jones has championed her career ever since an interview published in The New Yorker in May 2012. The Guardian's Sukhdev Sandhu credits her with being part of a wave of female producers, alongside the likes of Holly Herndon and Laurel Halo, that have broken into the traditionally male-dominated world of electronic music.
Her major breakthrough was the 23-minute EP "Genre-Specific Xperience," which received positive reviews including a rare, kind write-up from Pitchfork. The next year saw the release of the powerful Desert Strikes EP, which was widely and gushingly reviewed in a range of major art, music and culture magazines. In 2014, she released Asiatisch on Hyperdub, cementing her place as a major star in the international electronic music scene.
Generally, Fatima Al Qadiri performs DJ sets. She never used to play her music live but her interest in performance practice and multimedia collaboration means that we never know quite what to expect from her concerts. Fans will just have to buy a ticket and attend to find out just what's in store.
