London based musician, producer, DJ and broadcaster Nabihah Iqbal makes a return with long awaited second album DREAMER due for release in April via Ninja Tune.
The album is an intimate journey through snapshots and memories of Nabihah’s life, exploring personal identity and grief. With two years in the making, and since her critically acclaimed previous album Weighing of the Heart, her profile has been building with DJing, curating, teaching, composing and engaging with the art world.
Nabihah continues to be respected by peers in the creative and music scene. This year she has been appointed as Guest Director of Brighton Festival 2023, England’s
largest multi-arts festival, her “biggest, most challenging and exciting curatorial position” to date. Prior to that she also collaborated with artist Zhang Ding, was commissioned to compose music for the Turner Prize, collaborated with Wolfgang Tillmans as part of his Tate Modern exhibition, was involved in a group performance at the Barbican as part of its major Basquiat retrospective and contributed to Serpentine’s recent book ‘140 Artists’ ideas for Planet Earth’ to name a few.
