Who Took My Lizard?

Who Took My Lizard is the creation of the multi talented artistic genius that is Lewis Chapman. He is a master painter, insane musician, teacher and even created the lizard costume itself! We filmed this video all over interesting spots in Kuwait. For future videos and projects with the lizard fan created content about lizards will be used so get those creative juices flowing and hit up the websites below to find out more about this amazing project and of course the always cool Lizard itself! The song was originally acoustic but he and master producer Amin Fari teamed up to make it a fun dance track for everyone to enjoy. [YouTube]

Arabique – Matter of Time

[YouTube]

This is another new music video, it’s by Kuwaiti rapper Arabique who’s currently signed to the Bahraini record label Outlaw Productions. I’m not trying to take anything away from him but is it me or are there too many Kuwaiti rappers? Why aren’t there more metal heads like Faisal Al Salem?

Amoot Alaik by Aziz AlNasrallah

Posted by Mark

“Amoot Alaik” is the latest single by Kuwaiti musician Aziz AlNasrallah. I posted his previous single before called Tara Aadi which was created by 8-bit sounds generated from a GameBoy. This song is a completely different style and is from his upcoming album “Adawir Nafsi”. Here’s some interesting trivia related to “Amoot Alaik”:

- The idea of the song was conceived in a cafe in Frankfurt International Airport by Aziz and Mishari Hamad after discussing the schizo nature of love/hate relationships.

- During the Emirates Air flight from Frankfurt to Dubai Aziz started jotting down some lyrics and Mishari realized all his equipment was on board and started laying down initial tracks and arranging the lyrics to the music which is why they nicknamed it the “mile high” song.

- Mishari was torn between watching “Prometheus” or working on the song during the flight.

- Amoot Alaik’s arrangement includes a traditional Afro-Kuwaiti beat (Tanboora) which includes goat hooves.

- To compliment the ethnic feel of the beat, a Swiss tuned percussion instrument invented in the year 2000 called a Hang Drum was used.

You can check out the song by hitting play below or you can check out his other songs on [SoundCloud]
