Poetic dream pop and jazz meet Middle Eastern soul.

MARSM presents: A riveting combination of poetic dream pop, jazz and Middle Eastern soul, Palestinian singer and musician Ruba Shamshoum has formed a truly unique harmony. Her lyrics tell riveting stories of femininity, vulnerability, and celebrate human connection to nature and one’s self. For this spring date, Ruba will perform tracks from her new album, Risha.

Ruba Shamshoum performs live from Grand Junction, and then the concert 2will be available to watch on-demand for 14 days after the live event.

Born and raised in Nazareth, Ruba Shamshoum moved to Ireland in 2015 to major in Jazz Performance and currently resides in London. Risha is a follow up to her 2017 debut album Shamat (Beauty Spots), which she wrote and arranged. Releasing songs that have topped the indie charts across the Middle East and North Africa, Shamat explores complex shades of emotion, as she intricately covers themes of identity, escapism, fear, and love.
