We are Kabreet, a Berlin based music duo consisting of Yemeni artist Ibi Ibrahim and Berlin based journalist Hanno Stecher. Since we met in December 2014, we have been working on our very own kind of global pop music, that combines Arabic lyrics with percussion based and synth heavy sounds. We see our music as a bridge not only between two people of different backgrounds, but also as a bridge between different parts of the world. Our goal is to create something, that merges our different musical influences and approaches.

Over the course of the last 10 months we have worked on a whole bunch of demo songs, which we released on our Soundcloud and Facebook pages. Now we decided to release 10 of them on a debut album with the title "Momken Bokra". The record, which we plan to release early 2016, will consist of 9 original songs and one interpretation of the Yemeni folklore song "Ya Hizali".

To finish our album, we have the chance to work with Berlin based producer Simon 'Berkfinger' Berckelman in his Golden Retriever Recording studios. Simon has worked with great Berlin based artists like Black Cracker or Evvol and international artists like How To Dress Well. Since we are a newcomer band and only have a small home studio, we think his experience would give our music the last important touch it needs. This is especially the final mixing and mastering. Additionally, we will on selected songs work with guest musicians, who play acoustic instruments like oud or guitar. We hope that this will give the music a more natural, organic feel.

We see the album as a base for further activities like rehearsing for live shows, applications for festivals and finding a label. This is why would be very very grateful if you would support us and help us taking this big first step. Listen to our music, share this video with your friends and please, DONATE!

احنا فرقة كبريت - ثنائي موسيقي في برلين متآلف من الفنان اليمني ايبي ابراهيم والكاتب الآلماني هانو ستيشير. من آول ما التقينا في ديسمبر ٢٠١٤ واحنا بنعمل على تكوين موسيقي بنوع خاص وشخصي - موسيقي بتجمع بين الكلمات العربية مع ايقاع طابعه وانتاجه كثيف. احنا بنشوف ان الموسيقى جسر مش بس بين شخصين من خلفيات مختلفة بس كمان جسر بين اجزاء مختلفة من العالم ، وهدفنا هو ان نخلق شي اللي يدمج مختلف التآثيرات والمناهج الموسيقية

على مدى العشرة الآشهر الماضية كتبنا ولحنا عدد من الآغاني ، والان قررنا آن ننتج عشر آغاني منهم كآول البوب للفرقة بعنوان ( ممكن بكرة ) - الآلبوم بيتكون من تسعة اغاني اصلية و كوفر لآغنية من التراث اليمني اسم الاغنية هو يا هزلي

عشان نعمل الانتاج النهائي للآلبوم ، احنا بنحب نعمل مع المنتج المقيم في برلين سيمون بيركولمان في استدويو غولدون ريترفر. سيمون اشتغل مع عديد من الفنانين الناجحين منهم بلاك كراكر و ايفول و فنانين عالمين مثل هاو تو دريس ويل

ولآن احنا فرقة جديدة وعندنا فقط استديو منزلي بسيط ، بنتوقع ان التجربة في الستوديو مع سيمون بتعطي لمسة مهمة للآلبوم - خاصة من ناحية الميكسينج والماسترينج. بالاضافة الى هـذا، احنا اخترنا بعض الموسيقيين اللي حنشتغل معاهم عشان يعطوا الآلبوم احساس طبيعي قوي

احنا بنشوف هذا الآلبوم بمثابة قاعدة لكل الانشطة القادمة والعروض الفنية الحية وتطبيقات لمهرجانات وحنكون سعيدين جدا و في غاية الشكر لو تفضلتهم و دعمتونا وقدمت لنا المساعدة

Wir sind Kabreet, eine Band aus Berlin, die aus dem jemenitischen Künstler Ibi Ibrahim und dem aus Süddeutschland stammenden Journalisten Hanno Stecher besteht. Seit wir uns im Dezember 2014 zum ersten Mal getroffen haben, arbeiten wir an unserer eigenen Idee einer globalen Popmusik, welche arabischen Gesang mit Percussion-basierten und Syntheziser-lastigen Sounds zusammenbringt. Wir sehen unsere Musik nicht nur als Brücke zwischen zwei Menschen mit unterschiedlichen Backgrounds, sondern auch zwischen verschiedenen Teilen der Welt. Unser Ziel ist es, etwas zu schaffen, das unsere musikalischen Einflüsse und Herangehensweisen verschmelzt.

Während der vergangenen Monate haben wir an einer Reihe von Demosongs gearbeitet, die wir auf unseren Soundcloud- und Facebook-Seiten veröffentlicht haben. Wir haben uns nun dafür entschieden, 10 dieser Songs auf einem Debütalbum mit dem Titel "Momken Bokra" zu vereinen. Die Platte, die wir Anfang 2016 herausbringen wollen, wird aus 9 selbst geschriebenen und komponierten Songs sowie einer Version des jemenitischen traditionellen Songs "Ya Hizali" bestehen.

Wir haben die Chance, unser Album in Zusammenarbeit mit dem in Berlin ansässigen Produzenten Simon 'Berkfinger' Berckelman in seinen Golden Retriever Studios fertigzustellen. Simon hat bereits mit großartigen Berliner Künstler_innen wie Black Cracker oder Evvol sowie internationalen Namen wie How To Dress Well zusammengearbeitet. Da wir als Newcomerband mit unserem Homestudio sehr limitiert sind, glauben wir, dass er unserem Sound mit seiner Erfahrung den letzten Schliff verpassen kann. Es geht dabei vor allem um ein abschließendes Mixing und Mastering. Darüber hinaus wollen wir für einzelne Songs mit Gastmusikern arbeiten, die den Sound organischer klingen lassen.

Wir sehen das Album als Basis für weitere Aktivitäten wie dem Proben für Liveauftritte, Bewerbungen für Festivals sowie der Suche nach einem Label. Darum sind wir Euch dankbar, wenn wir uns unterstützt und uns dabei helft, diesen ersten wichtigen Schritt zu nehmen. Hört Euch unsere Musik an, teilt dieses Video mit Euren Freunden und – am allerwichtigsten – SPENDET!

Risks and challenges

There might be new ideas or technical problems coming up in the course of the production period that might delay the planned release date of the album in January. This could also mean that donators receive the album with a small delay.
