For the first time, diasporic lead singers and friends Yousra Mansour & Jamila Al-Yousef unite in a concert for female empowerment & decolonial liberation. With their bands Bab L’Bluz and Jamila & The Other Heroes they will share the stage at SÄÄLCHEN Berlin. Both bands are known for combining psychedelic progressive rock music with North African and West Asian rhythms, vocals and instruments. 

Yousra & Jamila team up as an act of solidarity and empowerment. Both have released songs to end patriarchal and colonial structures and celebrate the strengths of women* and our female ancestors. After a sexual harassment incident in a backstage, Jamila had an inspiring conversation with Yousra and wrote Ya Habibi, La with her band. Including a feminist choir, the song is all about setting boundaries and speaking up for awareness structures in the Club- and Festival scene. Just recently Yousra released AmmA, a song about the injustice of having women* still doing most of the care work and being treated in a sexist manner. Yousra addresses her own precious mother and puts her anger into music that will make you dance and sweat! 

This will be the first proper Berlin show of Lyon based and internationally hyped band Bab L’Bluz, that is just releasing their new album Swaken. Also Jamila & The Other Heroes join Säälchen with their latest album Bazaar Bizarre. فلسطين وين أنا؟ . Palestine where am I? - the translation of the Arabic title – refers to Jamila’s Palestinian diasporic identity. As an utmost tragedy is unfolding in front of our eyes in Gaza and attempts grow to delegitimize and silence Palestinian voices worldwide, her message is more relevant than ever. In songs like Fragments of Palestine , YABA or Border Syndrome Jamila addresses the fight against racism, occupation and the wish for liberation and equal rights for everyone who lives in the region. 

As friends and fellow musicians, Yousra & Jamila, both chose music as their weapon to fight injustice in the world. We invite you to join their musical struggle for liberation and empowerment and enjoy their rich bands sounds’.

Short Bios

Bab L' Bluz (literally "The door of the Blues") is a Franco-Moroccan group created in 2018 in Marrakech following the meeting of the Moroccan singer/guitarist Yousra Mansour and the French guitarist / producer Brice Bottin. Passionate about Gnawa music, they decide to learn together the guembri. Armed with their electric guembris, Bab L' Bluz resonates a mixture of Gnawa trance rhythms, Hassani songs from southern Morocco and Chaâbi polyrhythms, propelling their music into the magnetic fields of psychedelic rock and volutes of incense.

Led by a woman doukkalia, the group wants to carry a revolution of attitude being part of the movement of the Moroccan youth "Nayda", a new wave of artists and committed musicians who are inspired by the local heritage and sing texts of freedom in the Moroccan-Arabic dialect, the darija. Very active since its creation, the power quartet travels the globe to distill its hypnotic riffs and spread its mystical and liberating headbanging frenzy to its audience - a true signature of the group. Poetic and powerful, Bab L' Bluz is an expanding universe, a sonic territory that transcends boundaries. In 2020, Bab L' Bluz made a stunning entrance on the music scene with the album Nayda! Mojo Top 10 world Album of the year, Songlines Best albums of 2020, The New York Times, Vogue Arabia, BBC, Le Monde, Financial Time, Pan African Music, Uncut, Radio Nova or Arte Concert... 
In 2021, Bab L' Bluz won his first Songlines Music Awards and thenbegan a world tour which is still ongoing (Europe, Africa,America, Oceania)...






JAMILA & THE OTHER HEROES is a Berlin based band from manywhere playing Psychedelic Desert Funk to make you fly. Leading the band is the vibrant Jamila Al- Yousef. Born in Berlin on the day the wall came down, and raised by her influential Palestinian refugee father, Jamila composes music with her Heroes to connect with transcultural audiences who can identify with the bands' diaspora narratives and their musical fight against racism.

"As people with family backgrounds in Syria, Palestine, Italy and Colombia, we travel and create home within our music." Jamila's emancipatory message in Arabic and English is supported by powerful live musicians. Let yourself be carried away by an incomparable sound of psychedelic guitar riffs (Leon Sanchez), vibrating on a warm and earthy fundament of wavy bass runs (Felix ‚Fema’ Barth), Arab percussion rhythms (Salam Alhassan) and Afrobeat, Hip Hop und Rock influenced drum beats (Pier Ciaccio). The dance floor JAMILA & THE OTHER HEROES create is a breeding ground for people to meet and practice togetherness - the musicians’ response to the exclusion mechanisms of our time. The message of the band is simple: “All of us can be Heroes! Let’s discover our super powers and make the world a better place.“
