2023 will see Nabihah Iqbal release her eagerly-awaited sophomore album ‘Dreamer’ via Ninja Tune, the follow up to her 2017 critically acclaimed debut ‘Weighing of the Heart’.
Aside from working on her own music, Nabihah has hosted a bi-weekly show on NTS Radio since 2013, exploring musical traditions and cultures without boundaries. The success of this show, and the following that Nabihah has built up as a DJ and tastemaker, caught the attention of the BBC and she has frequently appeared on their networks since 2018, presenting shows on BBC Radio 1, Radio 3, Radio 4, 1Xtra, Asian Network, World Service and 6Music.
She has toured extensively around the world, both as a live act and as a DJ. Performance highlights include the Tate Modern and Tate Britain, as well as the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Barbican, Victoria & Albert Museum in London, K11 Art Institute in Shanghai and MoMA PS1 in New York. Inter-disciplinary projects form an important part of Nabihah’s work and she has collaborated with Chinese artist Zhang Ding, with Wolfgang Tillmans as part of his Tate Modern exhibition and was recently involved in a group performance at the Barbican as part of its major Basquiat retrospective.
