A star is here

A sensational artist is all set to perform in Bahrain.Formerly known as Throwing Shade, Nabihah Iqbal released her debut full-length album "Weighing of the Heart" via Ninja Tune in December 2017. Her first release was on Kassem Mosse's Ominira imprint in 2013. She puts more focus on live instruments, charting the waters where dance music and pop meet. Recorded in her studio space, Nabihah approached the recording sessions with an open mind, playing all of the parts on the album herself. The album was mixed by Studio 13's Stephen Sedgwick and mastered by John Davis at Metropolis.

Other projects include presenting a four-part documentary series ‘Relocate’, for i-D Magazine and Volkswagen, collaboration with Chinese artist Zhang Ding, a commission by the Tate to compose music for the Turner Prize and a collaboration with Wolfgang Tillmans as part of his recent Tate Modern exhibition. She has performed live at the Tate Modern and Tate Britain, as well as the Institute of Contemporary Arts and she also took part in a group performance as part of the Barbican’s Basquiat retrospective.
