Fatima Al Qadiri

leave a comment »

A good friend flagged up this music video by the artist and music composer Fatima Al Qadiri. Both music and the video are just fantastic. I’ve attached the description for the video on YouTube, which positions the video as a piece of visual commentary as much as it is an accompaniment to the music (you can def read it as a critique on the objectification of young Arab women):

“Fatima Al Qadiri’s ‘How Can I Resist U’ is a love letter to London in general and Dubstep (before it wobbled) in particular. “Lenden” as it’s known has become a historic site of pilgrimage for wealthy Arabs seeking the forbidden fruits of sex, drugs and alcohol.”

If you are impressed enough with the video then go to her website. This woman is amazing.
