Tarabband’s music and lyrics narrates her journey of survival, exile, life and rebirth, and combines groove and sweetness with a charismatic voice to transgress borders that are drawn between countries and humans.

Formed in Malmö 2008, Tarabband hosts some of Sweden’s most skilled folk and world musicians. The group is led by the charismatic Iraqi-Egyptian singer Nadin, who fled war in Iraq to Sweden in 2001. “Tarab” itself is an Arabic term for the ecstasy that can appear when music and emotions merge and become one
