Shams, under his/their stage name NAXÖ. As a producer, composer, pianist, keyboardist and singer, he/they uses multiple sounds to explore psychological narratives, subjectivities, and stream of consciousness. Vocally, he/they activates emotional pitches to navigate personal transformation through his/their compositions. NAXÖ fuses his/their Egyptian heritage with contemporary schools of sound. His/Their work conjures a magical fusion that weaves psychedelic waves through beats. He/They creates a contemporary tapestry with MENA/Middle-Eastern North African folklore music and electronic sounds. His/Their compositions feature transparent voices calling to resist, embedded deep within a poly-rhythmic groove.
