Ongoing performance: Mazajiat
Since February 2023, Frida performs every Sunday at 7pm at Riwaq Beirut. "Mazajiat" (mood, in English) is a celebration of life, of the moment, and us coming together to make joy our reality.
Frida and her musimagicians take us on a journey created moment by moment by our collective energies, connecting us to the harmony that lies at the heart of every NOW moment.
Expect a story that is a concert, a workshop. Whatever we make of it, and know you will be creating that magical evening with us.
Come for the music, come for the joy, for the beauty of being together and melting into One, and come for the absolute pleasure of being fully you.

Latest EP - "Ana Min"
“انا مين - Ana Min“ is my third album. It weaves together all the different elements that are dear to me: messages of Love and Liberation, melodies born from and for the heart and rhythms that seem to come simultaneously from everywhere and nowhere in particular.
Starting from the Swiss core with whom I recorded my previous EP “The Freedom to Be” – Florian Bolliger (bass) and Félix Fivaz (drums) – my lineup expanded with my beloved musicians from Lebanon: Scarlett Saad (keyboards, guitar), Ramy Akiel (qanun) and Patrik Abi Abdalla (percussions and drums).
Recorded in the span of a few days at Redbooth Studios in Sahel Alma, Lebanon, Ana Min contains four new original songs in three different languages: Arabic, French and English.
Frida - vocals, guitar
Scarlett Saad - piano, keyboards, guitar, accordion, backing vocals
Ramy Akiel - qanoun, keyboards, backing vocals
Florian Bolliger - bass, backing vocals
Félix Fivaz - drums, piano, backing vocals
Patrik Abi Abdalla - percussion, drums
Kurt Werren - backing vocals
