With songs in Arabic and English, KUWAISIANA is an indie rock band based in New Orleans. The 7-piece is led by Kuwaiti songwriter +Aziz, who works with the group to produce a danceable big band sound with a world music influence.
“This band from New Orleans amalgamates elements of funk, rock, and reggae, with evocative poetic lyrics blending the day-to-day lives of Arab-American youth and the evolving viewpoint of Khaleejis living in the Arabian Peninsula.
Chapter 1 is amazingly excellent. The mixture of reggae, rock, funkadelic pop, and Arabic sonic patterns produces thrilling harmonics, a kind of reckless dynamism, and hormonal exuberance.” Randall Radic, BlogCritics
“At its core, the band is first and foremost a funk, rock, reggae band with the emphasis on spirit and personal authenticity. The band folds Arabic lyrics and musical touches into the arrangements, but they’re the seasoning, not the sauce.” Alex Rawls, My Spilt Milk
“These musicians are world class and second to none at what they do to combine old and new world themes that sound as good at any cookout or outdoor festival as they do at any inside venue, or on the headphones.” James McQuiston, Neaufutur
