Emel Mathlouthi is a Tunisian singer-songwriter who is known for her unique blend of traditional sounds and electronic beats. With her current release, her style has developed into a fully-formed blend that feels both classic and fresh, with distinctly powerful and memorable vocals floating on a bed of guitar, electronically affected sound, and beats. For this intimate session, Emel brought a raw, beautifully stripped-down performance to Serious Business Music in Brooklyn.
Ensen is available now from Partisan Records.
