Mazen El Sayed (aka El Rass), is a rapper and music producer from Tripoli, Lebanon. His discography includes 8 albums, the most recent is titled “Ard El Khof” , as well as more than 200 singles in collaboration with other music-makers and rappers from the region.

El Rass’s work has earned recognition and visibility in the Arab world, specifically for his dense lyrical content, versatility of styles and subject matter, and his personal sonic approach. El Sayed worked as a journalist before devoting his time to music, and has been described as a subversive voice inspired from traditional and contemporary expression, from the spiritual and the worldly.

About the organizer:

This concert is co-presented by MARSM Canada and Critical Distance Centre for Curators as part of the exhibition Garden of Broken Shadows, curated by Fatma Hendawy Yehia.

As part of his first tour in Canada, El Rass, known for his critical lyrics and performances, will engage with the exhibition’s topics around identity, immigration and adaptation through a vernacular yet deeply philosophical language.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
