Artist spotlight – Nabihah Iqbal

Nabihah Iqbal presents a musical take-over of two iconic and polar venues in the city – RRS Discovery and the Arctic Bar.

From 7pm–10pm performances will redefine Discovery’s decks through sound. The programme features a hybrid traditional/experimental bagpipe performance by Scottish musician and electronic music producer CAIN; Fiscal Harm – one of the many musical projects of Aldous RH – undertakes an experimental saxophone set; avant garde string duo Balladeste features Tara Franks on cello and Preetha Narayanan on violin, and Nick Hann combines experimental music with Scottish folk.

From 11pm the event moves to the Arctic Bar for a full-on dance party, where Iqbal is joined on the decks by Ursula Holliday – one half of punk band Skinny Girl Diet and co-presenter of the Holliday Show on NTS Radio – and Richard and Spencer – the living legends of Scotland’s electronic music scene behind the Numbers record label and Glasgow’s iconic Rubadub music and record shop.

Iqbal is honoured to be collaborating with Messenger Sound System for the Arctic Bar party – one of the oldest dub sound systems in Scotland, established in 1987 and still going strong.
