Artist and peace singer, human rights activist and first guest musician in the City of Harstad (SD/NO)
Abazar A. Bagi Hamid grew up in the cultural belt between Sudan and the Gulf, and his music is both rooted in traditional Sudanese and African music characteristic of the Gulf area, and heavily inspired by reggae and Afro-Latin music. Abazar Hamid started singing for peace in Sudan at an early age, and formed his fi rst band, ìBalsamî, at university. In 1997, he became well-known at regional level when he joined ìIgd Elgalad Bandî, and in 2005, he quit his job as an architect to start his solo career, launching the project ìRainbow Songsî. The project brought together musicians from across Sudan, aiming to slip lyrics about Human Rights and dignity past the music monitoring committee. Abazar Hamid released his fi rst solo album, ìSabahak Rabahî (ìGood Morning Homeî) in 2007 but experienced increasing censorship in his home country. Songs dealing with social and political issues riding Sudan were especially scrutinized, and after severe censorship and verbal threats, Abazar chose exile and moved to Cairo in 2008. In 2009 he established the project ìdemocratizing musicî in collaboration with other Sudanese and Egyptian musicians, as a forum to share resources rather than fi ghting each other. Abazar arrived, as Norways first guest musician in Safe Music Haven Harstad the 10th of december 2014.
Since his arrival in Harstad he has been most active in developing music as a tool for integration and understanding amongst people of different backgrounds, including through development of the concept Music4All, now with groups in Harstad, Paris, Oslo, Kyev, Kairo, Catalunia…, and more to come.
