‘The Closet Sessions’ concept existed ever since hip-hop artist and director Ahmad “Satti” Ibrahim used to record his songs at the beginning of his career inside his closet, for best acoustic results. ‘The Closet Sessions’ is a bi-monthly web-series with a high-production value and a cozy feel, where local, regional and international artists come and experiment with genres in a walk-in closet. This concludes with quality-recorded intimate live music sessions, accessible to the world on the YouTube platform. From indie ballads & ethnic folk, jazz, rock and electronic sets—‘The Closet Sessions’ crew paint a canvas of musical colours for everyone to explore. Along the process of highlighting the layers of Jordan’s multicultural music scene, comes the regional and international music projects that complement the overall canvas of the current scene. ‘The Closet Sessions’ universal concept is not new, but it is the first of its kind in the Middle East, uplifting the musical scene and contributing to the universal dialogue of cultural production.
