Music with a Meaning

By: Kaz

So I first heard Outlandish with their 'Aicha'. What a slick track! Soulful, and thought-provoking. deep and meaningful, yet very contemporary.

These three guys all from different backgrounds have come together and produced some of the most under-rated music to hail from Europe. Their fanbase spans from Latin America to Pakistan, from Manchester to Morroco! Different cultures and religions can identify with the music of these guys.

To overcome cultural, political, religious differences and come up with music of such calibre-now that's what is known as multiculturalism.

Outlandish seem to define and strengthen not only core values of Islam, but also of humanity-truly this is music with a meaning!

(Waqas Ali-Any Given Time)

I’m out to fight the devil but never fought myself

I read a thousand books but I never read myself

my soul starving needs to be fed

Lord I need your help

to hell with the devil

my biggest enemy is myself !
