Shebani

Born and raised in Dubai, the Iraqi singer-songwriter carved out the beginning of her musical career posting YouTube covers and performing across almost every open-mic night in the city. With her guitar in one hand and her passion for the arts in the other, she quickly racked up a string of shows juggling between playing covers and a handful of originals. Reaching what she ultimately felt was a plateau in her journey, she decided to undertake in creating her first official release in 2016; a 6 track EP titled 'Alter Ego'. Bringing her childhood inspirations to the forefront of her music, whilst discussing themes often subdued, Shébani represents the first female R&B singer-songwriter in the city to embrace the challenges of modern day relevance in music whilst embodying the significance of reflection and truth as a woman and for women.
