Electro Dance from Vancouver BC
Contact DetailsHayfa Abichahine
Romeo & Juliet is the musical collaboration between Lebanese-Canadian artist Hayfa Abichahine, and Toronto Producer Kai Fall. Both members have years of experience playing within their respective scenes, with Hayfa fronting the folk-pop outfit Hayfa Makes Music, and Kai Fall gigging as a jazz bassist and working with Montreal producer Jordan Peters producing for such artists as AOT and Emma Frank. Through hybridizing Hayfa’s folk/reggae tendencies with Kevin’s experience in composition and sound design, Romeo & Juliet create a unique brand of lyrical, electronic dance music. Stylistically, Romeo & Juliet directly cite Calvin Harris, Daft Punk, and M.I.A. as prominent influences; however, they also incorporate other elements into their music, like punchy 80’s bass lines, Arabic hand-drumming, as well as jazz and reggae vocal melodies, to establish a new sound that is virtually non-existent in the Vancouver independent music scene. Through Hayfa’s narrative sensibilities and Kai Fall's compositional perfectionism, Romeo & Juliet create exciting and energetic music that chronicles the oft-overlooked tales of sexuality and romance in urban life. Watch out for live shows and their debut album Fall 2010.
