Called one of the top 15 acts of 2015 by PopMatters, Emel Mathlouthi is a unique artist with a powerful message and a voice beyond comparison. A strident songstress whose intensity is cloaked in mellifluous vocals, she is also known for her role as a leading artist in the Arab Spring. Born in Tunisia, she was shunned from her country’s official airwaves but rose to prominence through social media, garnering widespread praise for her powerful vocals laid over a unique mix of North African rhythms and modern electronic beats. She is touring in support of her sophomore album, Ensen, just released on February 24, 2017 on Partisan Records
