Souq El-Jum3a will perform songs from their new album (Hafleh | party) which will be released this summer 2024. The album is a new collaboration with the poet Firas Sulaiman (Abu-Siwa), and consists of six satirical, sarcastic songs.

Souq El-Jum3a is a group of immigrant musicians and artists from the Arab world presenting original songs that aspire to preserve the essence of classical Arabic music. The project strives through collaboration of artists through the mediums of song-making and music videos. The name of the project takes its meaning from (Friday Market) which is a spontaneous market (or souq) that assembles weekly on the holy day of Friday in many cities across the Arab world. Souqs where people from all walks of life gather to socialize and market. Artists come to our “souq” to collaborate and create.
