BODUR returns with new single ‘TAPESTRY [HIJAZ]’

London-born musician BODUR releases her new single ‘TAPESTRY [HIJAZ]’ via PACE.

BODUR enters a new chapter with ‘TAPESTRY [HIJAZ]’ influenced by Maqam, a traditional Arabic system of microtonal music, something that she began exploring after learning to play the Oud, a fretless, Middle Eastern string instrument. Flitting between BODUR’s rich and distorted vocals, tension builds within the Gabriel Gifford (Harvey Causon, Lucy Lu) production as she tackles “generational trauma and the impact that has on our family that we love ‘.

Inspired by Hijaz – a Maqam mood that gives feelings of solitude, enchantment, mysticism and distant desert – BODUR captures the essence of a desert transitioning from sunset to midnight. BODUR who wrote and executive produced the track formed a creative relationship with director partnership Furmaan Ahmed (SOPHIE, Shygirl, Eartheater, Celeste) and creative director Rukaiyah Qazi for the accompanying visualizer capturing the core themes within the music.
