Campaign successfully funded on: 16 Jan,2018
The major objective of this campaign is to bring together financial
contributions to support the launch of Amer Altaher’s second Album, Aks
The genre of this album is Arabic rap which celebrates local voices, beats,
and rhythms. The album does not follow mainstream Arabic rap. On the
contrary, it offers the listener a new type of music through which he/she will
establish a sense of space and connect to the desert, mountains, and the city
as we see it today.
This album amalgamates postmodern prose, contemporary poetry, Arabic rap,
and classical poetry; in doing so, it offers various imageries and concepts
which draw from memory. The memory this album draws on, moreover,
emanates from displacement, exile, nostalgia, and the politics of home and
identity which problematize the path a Palestinian artist goes through.
Local Palestinian artist in Amman, Amer Altaher, believes Arabic rap has its
own flavor, roots, and agenda. It has its unique approach to social criticism
since it derives from the colloquial Arabic and unites the various dialects and
streets, from Oman to Marrakesh. Arabic rap also translates the dreams of
youths in the Arab world and the reality which presents independent artists
and local talents with many obstacles.
This album, Aks Alseil, is a vocal expression and an oral translation of the
untold stories, the buried emotions, and the difficulties which are here
liberated through the sound of music towards freedom.
The objective of this campaign is to collect financial support for production and
recoding, as well as having the recorded material engineered by music
experts. The money will also go into securing financial support for the team
and members working on this album, including producers, musicians,
directors, and other artists involved.

About Amer AL-Taher
Amer Al Taher is a Jordanian music producer and performer. He is a rapper of Palestinian origins, whose music takes on a contemporary style that is inspired by spaces he occupies, the people he speak to and for, as well as daily details he finds stimulating.
It was in 2006 when Al Taher performed his first live concert in the capital of Jordan, Amman. In 2008, he established a music band, Share’ 962, which performed its first concert in Amman Summer Festival, in Al Hussein Park. As early as 2008, their music was new to the music scene which had never been introduced to such genre. This paved the way to the dissemination of this particular kind of music and its promotion within local communities.
Amer Al Taher launched his first album, Angle 360, in 2012 when he collaborated with a number of talented producers and musicians, such as Tamer Naffar from DAM, a Palestinian rap band, and other producers such as lethal skills, Damar, Omar Othman, Maen Hijazein, and Jihaz.
Al Taher is the lead singer and lyricist of project Al Mukhtar which was met with great enthusiasm on social media and live concerts thereafter.
He worked together with local as well as international artists on vocal as well as visual projects; he participated in a number of music concerts in local Jordanian and various Arab capitals in the regions.
On the one hand, Amer aspired to document in his music the actuality lived by the Arab youths. On the other, he seeks to reflect such reality through the power of words and music, in order to achieve a higher standard of living and expression.
