“dyar" is named after the Arabic word for “Homes”. dyar performs, except from its own original songs, a program of Arabic music fused with different styles of music from all around the world, in order to show how music is connected and connects us all.
We see in dyar an imaginary house in which people feel at home, in which everyone is welcome and in which Arabic and Western music can live together.
Nawras Altaky (Ud and vocals), Modar Salama (percussion), Lucas Dols (double bass, a.o. Room Eleven, Tin Men & the Telephone) and Gino Bombrini (percussion, a.o. Skip & Die and Komodo) started the band after their performance with Caro Emerald in a sold-out Paradiso in June 2017.
