East Wing presents the first exhibition showcasing Habibi Funk, a record label dedicated to re-releasing the evolution of a musical style that historically never had its own particular genre. The label, headed by Berlin-based DJ Jannis Stuertz is dedicated to describing a particular fusion of sounds and catalog of artists formed in cities geographically distant from one another in the Arab world and, although produced under very different circumstances, the artists are connected by a distinct musical compositions, which mixes local and regional influences with other inspirations from outside their region.
