Ghalia Benali in Hadret Ishq

Ghalia Benali in Hadret Ishq

Hidden Musics (2021)


Tunisian-Belgian artist Ghalia Benali has been on the receiving end of many descriptors - perhaps none as fitting as ‘a maker of her own myths’, as said by the New York Times. Benali’s dual upbringing (she was raised between Brussels and South Tunisia) directly reflects on her genre-bending music. For her latest, ‘Hadret Ishq’, or the Sufi Project, which she will perform at Le Guess Who?, she reinterprets Sufi songs and poems, once again defying geography, time and space.
