Jamila & The Other Heroes is a wild Berlin based band from manywhere that creates Psychedelic Desert Funk to make you fly. Leading the band is the vibrant Jamila Al-Yousef.

SIT EL KON sounds like a boundless dream. It takes listeners on a furious journey through unconscious galaxies which unite us with the experiences and spirits of our ancestors that continue to exist on this planet in the here and now.
While racist agitation is increasingly becoming acceptable in many circles of our society, the five musicians have made it their mission to break down prejudices towards people with histories of migration and asylum and make the abundance of cultural diversity more visible and audible.
Let yourself be carried away by an incomparable sound of psychedelic guitar riffs, vibrating on a warm and earthy fundament of wavy bass runs and Arab percussion sounds, as well as heavy hip hop und rock influenced drum beats. The dance floor JAMILA & THE OTHER HEROES create is a breeding ground for people to meet and practise togetherness - the musicians’ response to the currently operating exclusion mechanisms of our time.
The message of the band is simple: “All of us can be Heroes! Let’s discover our super powers and make the world a better place.“
