MYRATH are streaming the new song “Mersal”, featured on the power prog band’s new album, “Shehili”, out now via earMusic.
MYRATH‘s heritage and willingness to infuse their influences with the historic music of their homeland is what sets them apart. The sounds of Tunisia are that of Arabic and Asian folk music, which can be readily heard in the rhythms, segues, and choruses of MYRATH‘s compositions.
“Shehili” is innovative, yet loyal to the band’s signature sound. It establishes contrasts between uplifting melodies and thoughtful, and, at times, heartbreaking lyrics. The best example of this duality can be found in Shehili’s first single “Dance,” the video of which was a sequel to “Believer.” The “Dance” video tallied more than a million views in the first five weeks of release.
As singer Zaher Zorgati says, “The purpose of our music is to induce happiness and joy, to pay tribute to those who refuse to fall or to stop hoping, even in a world filled with hatred and uncertainty.”
