Hana Malhas & The Overthinkers Live @ Blue Fig - Amman, Jordan

I have blogged about Jordanian singer  Hana Malhas and her amazing music and talent  previously at http://author32.blogspot.com/2012/07/hana-malhas-jordanian-singer-who.html


Today (August 24, 2012) Hana Malhas and The Overthinkers: performed live at Blue Fig in Amman, Jordan--a performance that combined acoustic indie folk-pop with subtle electro-elements (three part harmonies, guitars, keys, percussive creations, a shaker, and a good time). 

Maher Hanhan was on percussions, Odai Shawagfeh on e. guitar and vocals, Lana Abu Khader on vocals.

Cohesive and complex, each performed track maintained undertones of melancholy, while simultaneously achieving the catchiness of a pop tune.

“Her voice has a great deal of texture and soul…[Malhas’s] songs are both deeply felt and full of fresh images...[she] has an unusual knack for using elemental nature images with emotional resonances.” -Ann Arbor Oberserver

One writer, Philip Logos, describes the album: “Hana’s voice is at times haunting, and hard-hitting at others. The songs are relatable, not because of universal themes or catchy tunes – for frequently both music and lyrics take an unexpected (and therefore interesting) turn – but rather because of the unabashedly exposed nature of the writing, which can only be the product of Hana’s sincere approach to connecting with her audience.”

Hana Malhas: Jordanian Singer Who Records in English



Info below partially taken from www.hanamalhas.com

Hana Malhas likes to describe her music as borderless indie folk-pop. She chases summer every year from the US (her current residence) to Amman, Jordan (the hometown she hails from). She sings mostly in English (but sometimes in Arabic) and performs solo and/or with her band The Overthinkers (which varies from duo to full band) on stages in both the US and the Middle East.  She is a storyteller with an expressive vocal delivery.

Her shows over the past year have included such venues as The Ark in Ann Arbor, Top of the Park at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival and the Citadel in Amman. Places performed include: Michigan (Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Detroit, Dearborn, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Albion), New York City, Chicago, Boston, Milwaukee, Jordan (Amman), and Lebanon (Beirut).

In September 2011 Hana Malhas performed live with the Lebanese band Mashrou' Leila at the Citadel in Amman.

While Hana's 2010 debut LP Shapeshift featured 17 American and Jordanian artists recorded over two time zones, her new CD--titled Hana Malhas & The Overthinkers (released on June 5th)--is as cohesive as it is complex. It is more focused, elemental, and intimate. Hana describes this album as “full of subtle drama. To me, it’s about your subconscious love, your inner superhero, or your darkest quiet place.”

Here are some video clips featuring Hana Malhas singing in English plus one in Arabic.

The clip below features Hana Malhas performing Coldplay's 'Fix You' @ the University of Michigan Lydia Mendelssohn Theater, 10/25/2011. Recorded by Dave Schall:



The song below is the official video clip for the new single from Hana's new album Hana Malhas & The Overthinkers.  Released June 5th, 2012.  Directed, shot, and edited by: Ali Saloum (http://www.alisaloum.com). Starring: Emi Guimond, Shane Firek, and friends in costumes.



Finally here is a beautiful duet, in Arabic, featuring Hana Malhas and Yazan Al Rousan. This song is titled 'Trouh' and is about religious tolerance.  It is available on Hana's CD Hana Malhas & The Overthinkers.  It may be purchased on Soundcloud or iTunes.
