This week we sample tracks submitted by TripleW.ME, producers and bands making songs across Middle East and North Africa and all the cultures these regions encompass. In some places, music is still frowned on, yet in places like Dubai or Abu Dhabi where Phillipinos, Indians and other Arab expats such as Lebanese and Syrians are at the forefront of small the band scene, there are pockets of unique talent which TripleW.ME champions.
TripleW.ME is an alternative online source for all areas of Middle Eastern and North African pop culture: independent music, film, photography, comedy, street art. TripleW.ME posts news, reviews and interviews in English and Arabic, with photo galleries and audio streaming, and online community profiling (Makshoof) with a focus on home-grown emerging and established talent. Broadcasts 9-9.30pm tonight repeats Fridays 3.30pm GMT
