Sudanese-Saudi rapper Dafencii has just released a shaabi/trap single ‘The Big Eid’.

The track sees Dafencii skillfully interweaving classic Arabic instrumentations and modern trap beats with elements from Egyptian mahraganat and Sudanese zenniq. A masterful blend of dialects and cultural references, ‘The Big Eid’, released under MDLBEAST Records, features the hip-hop artist's sharp sarcastic lyricism and laid-back vocals. However, the infectious upbeat rhythms and drum patterns present throughout the two-and-half-minute track beautifully capture the vibrant energy of Eid cultural celebrations.

The music video accompanying the track - featuring Dafencii discarding his everyday attire for a white jalabiya – showcases the rich diverse cultures that shape his playful and fluid sonic identity.
