Walid Ben Selim, Ammar 808 & Mayssa Jallad

A humanist singer and composer in multiple forms, Walid Ben Selim was one of the founders of the "Nayda" movement and the group N3rdistan. He has visited Oslo World with N3distand before and returns to the festival this year with his new project Nascentia!

Sofyann Ben Youssef A.K.A. Ammar 808 is the mastermind behind the critically acclaimed albums Maghreb United and Global Control / Invisible Invasion, as well as the project Bargou08. Before moving to Europe, he became the godfather of the Tunisian alternative and electronic scene.

Marjaa: The Battle of the Hotels, is an album born of Mayssa Jallad’s two vocations: music and architecture. Mayssa’s music caters to post-war youth who have never been taught their difficult history. It is also a call to protest for the renewal, rather than the recycling, of the political class that holds the population hostage.
