DUBAIS is the Lo-Fi Arab-futurist band from visual artist Nadia Buyse. Nadia has been in over 37 bands, collaborating with many artists and musicians in various capacities… but name dropping is boring AF.
��Although DUBAIS operates like a band, it’s actually a vehicle for conceptual work and cultural acti...vism in which Nadia uses the tropes of pop music to examine Diasporic migration, Neo-liberal dystopia, emotional incapacitations, consumer technologies, hybrid identities, intersectional feminism, and transnational communities. DUBAIS has released music, published text, taught a multitude of workshops, lectured, exhibited work, and performed internationally in a variety of spaces and places.
This band began as the Adrian Piper Cover Band, where Nadia would do “pop covers” of text excerpts from Adrian Piper’s seminal video installation Cornered. It mutated into DUBAIS during an art residency where the first song STEP BACK was written and recorded with a cellphone, inside of a video feedback loop, in a bathroom.
From absurd synth covers to bedroom pop songs about dating the devil and murdering him, Nadia’s music jumps from genre to genre, being thread together by a strong DIY Aesthetic and video art that spans over installation, performance, visual albums, experimental pop operas, etc.
