renseignements supplémentaires

Producer and musician Radwan Ghazi Moumneh is one of the founding manitous of the Hotel2tango studio, but also a sought-after artist who founded Jerusalem in My Heart and actively participated in Land of Kush, among others. A true luminary. Moumneh has teamed up with Amélie Malissard, artist and cultural project manager and founder of act-art-mgt, which guides the destinies of several artists and groups on the Montreal scene, to create a new label: Asadun Alay.

Radwan and Amélie wanted to showcase artists who have little chance of obtaining such a passport from “conventional” labels. In other words, they’re going for the niché. At PAN M 360, we agree with this vision a thousand times over. So, when we heard that two albums would be released at the same time on March 29, the label’s first two (with the exception of a first attempt, released in 2022, but which was a vinyl edition of an album previously released on another label), we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to talk to them over video about the label, the artists chosen, their albums and a launch concert at the PHI Centre. We’re sure you’ll agree that PAN M 360 is a great label to work with.

Two albums will be released on March 29 under the Asadun Alay label:

  • Farah Kaddour – Bada
  • Nadah El Shazly – Les damnés ne pleurent pas will be launched at PHI Center, March 21
