In his debut documentary effort, Vibrations traces the steps of Kuwaiti multimedia artist and social entrepreneur, Zahed Sultan, whose grassroots approach to work in social causes and music are the inspiration for a recording project that takes him to uncharted territory – Jamaica. The film reveals Zahed’s approach to re-imagining the folk music traditions of Kuwait and his journey to discover the roots to Jamaica’s musical and societal heritage – with a cast of characters he meets along the way who help him realize the unlikely bridges that exist between two seemingly disparate cultures – ties that remind us of our shared struggles as people and our ability to empower ourselves in a rapidly changing world. Vibrations is expected to be shown at film festivals in 2018.
Zahed will be screening the ‘Vibrations’ film at RichMix in London on May 3rd along with a short performance and talk. You can learn more about the event here.
