Kefaya And Elaha Soroor

Kefaya is an award-winning collective of musicians and producers based in the UK led by Al  MacSween, Giuliano Modarelli and Joost Hendrickx. The international line-up, spanning homelands such as UK, Italy, Afghanistan, Iran & The Netherlands, reflects the way that Kefaya works in collaboration, drawing on multiple sounds and outlooks to present a united front of spirited musical and political expression.

After the success of their first album, Radio International (Songlines Music Award 2017, Best Newcomer) Kefaya joined forces in 2019 with Afghan-Hazara singer Elaha Soroor for a mighty and mesmerising new album, Songs Of Our Mothers; a fresh, vibrant take on Afghan folk music filtered through myriad forms, from spiritual jazz and dub to Indian classical music and electronica. Driven by a shared desire to use music as a tool for political dialogue and action together they forged the themes, concept and sound of Songs of Our Mothers.
