Multicultural Louisiana-based sextet, Kuwaisiana, released the first single ‘Bara7a’ off of their upcoming album Chapter 2 (set to drop on January 15th). Helmed by singer/songwriter and guitarist, +Aziz, Kuwaisiana is composed of French drummer Matthieu, Turkish trumpeter Dehan Elćin, bassist Sam Levine, Nick Ferreirae on the sax, and American hand-percussionist Patrick Driscoll. 

‘Bara7a’ blends indie rock, funk, ska, New Orleans jazz, and elements of Khaleeji music, and follows the story of frontman +Aziz’s experiences as an adolescent in Kuwait, smoothly transitioning between lyrics in both Arabic and English.
