Fatima Al Qadiri will release new album 'Medieval Femme' on May 14th.
The producer's work is rich in depth and possibility, with her album 'Shaneer' representing a breakthrough of sorts.
Since then, Fatima has embarked on a number of different creative projects, before the machinery for 'Medieval Femme' began to align.
Out on May 14th the record is a song suite inspired by classical poems written by Arab women, typically work that evoke a sense of the sublime or otherworldly.
Lead track 'Malaak' is online now, and it finds Fatima Al Qadiri exploring the metaphor of an Islamic garden, a simulated daydream that presents a liminal state existing between depression and desire.
As always with her work, it's a gorgeous listen, a multi-faceted gem that takes time to fully absorb and explore.
Check out 'Malaak' below.
