Both indisputably talented and female, her signature take on deep, groove-centric house music has been making ripples across the Middle East since 2005. Over the years Tanya Abboud has lent her tunes to notorious party crews like Cotton Candy and Shout, as well as moved dance floors in Dubai, Jordan and Nigeria. Her unique style has also seen her name grace the marquee next to the likes of Siopis, Shonky, Giles Smith, Dinky, Tiefschwarz, My Favorite Robot and many more of the undergrounds biggest and baddest. A true trendsetter, when she’s not ruling over the booth you can catch her shredding waves (she’s a professional Windsurfer too) or taking on any other kind of outdoor adventure. If the waters not your thing then you can catch her moving the crowd at Überhaus, Beirut’s house music institution.
