“JadaL, transforming the barren desert into a musical jungle”… Cairo Scene"
“...their international fan base keeps growing. Everywhere they go they create controversy, set the stage alight, and make the audience roar.” Ahram Online
JadaL (English: Controversy) is one of the main pillars of the so called “Independent Arabic Music Scene”, while the Arabic music industry was conquered for decades by the same artists and styles with mainly commercial music, JadaL being formed in 2003 helped greatly to turn the table and educate the Arabic music enthusiasts to new styles of music, in JadaL’s case Grunge, Rock and more, sang in Arabic language-Jordanian accent, infused with folk and oriental local spirit, which gave birth in JadaL’s case to "Arabic Rock".
With 3 albums under their belt, headlining most indie festival in the Arab world attracting over 20k+ attendees, multi million views on videos and songs online JadaL's are now ready to reach out for the international fans and make new ones!
