Electro Zajal is a new RBMA documentary series exploring the marriage of zajal, a traditional form of performance poetry, with contemporary musical styles in Beirut, bringing together a master practitioner of zajal and six Lebanese electronic producers.

Zajal is a form of semi-improvised, semi-sung poetry that dates to the 12th century. Despite its ancient, far-flung origins, however, zajal remains a vital tradition in modern Lebanon, with the poets, also known as zajalists, attaining high levels of recognition and acclaim.

Watch the four-part Electro Zajal series will debut on RBMA, culminating in the release of the collaborative EP between the zajalist and producers. First up is “Intro to Zajal,” where we meet Imad Zein Choeib in his hometown and hear more about the zajal tradition.
