Since 2012, Hatim Belyamani – aka HAT – unites artists in an ever-evolving audio-visual dance between traditional music and digital remix art. In his one-of-a-kind live show, HAT is as an orchestra conductor from the future, beaming traditional musicians from the four corners of the world onto a big screen, and shaping them harmoniously into new electro beats.

Like never before, you’ll see that there is but one step from the rhythms of our ancestors to tomorrow’s electro.

Growing up in Morocco, Hatim was an award-winning classical pianist, a guitarist, and surrounded by sounds of the country’s Arabic, Amazigh, and Sub-Saharan African origins. At Harvard, he studied sociology, music composition, jazz, and ethnomusicology, but found his voice in electronic music – a medium that opened doors towards unifying his eclectic influences. For the next decade, Hatim composed, produced, and performed in various solo and collaborative projects, under the moniker officerfishdumplings.

In 2012, Hatim founded remix ←→ culture, an international artist collective committed to creating new harmonious links between traditional music and remix art. Carried out with passionate collaborators, the project consists in identifying a country’s various musical traditions, then recording, filming, producing, mixing, and remixing them. Work began in Hatim’s native Morocco, a land uniquely rich in melodies and rhythms of diverse origins and influences, and later expanded to other countries, most recently Brazil.

In 2015, Hatim began sharing his work with larger audiences (sometimes tens of thousands) at various festivals in Morocco, as well as at the Lincoln Center in NY, where he performed live remixes of the videos shot by the collective. In 2016, Hatim premiered new video remixes at various festivals and venues in Europe (notably the Roskilde Festival in Denmark and WOMEX 2016 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain), as well as in China.

The project has received increasing acclaim since its inception, in countless print, TV, radio, and online media outlets.
