"ADIRA" is a slang term in Arabic used in the Levantine queer culture, signifying someone with a strong presence who is capable and accomplished. ADIRA is a queer Arabic-pop party series. Founded in 2023 by Lebanese artist Hassandra and Syrian-German podcaster Zuher Jazmati, aka. xanax_attax, ADIRA is a self-organized club night series that challenges orientalist stereotypes and embraces the vibrant diversity of queer Arab* identities. Our mission is to revive the nostalgia of 80’s, 90’s, and early 00’s Arabic-pop music, paying homage to iconic divas like Nawal El Zoghbi, Haifa Wehbe, and Assala, alongside the unforgettable one-hit wonders from Melody Hits. As a collective, we have been dedicated to curating community events, panels, drag shows and workshops that aim at strengthening the community as well as provide more space for individuals to grow. ADIRA provides a platform for both emerging and established Arab* talents in Berlin and beyond, whether they're DJs spinning beats or drag performers captivating audiences. We are committed to creating a safe(r) environment and fostering community connections, welcoming allies and lovers of Arabic music to join us in our celebration of Arab* culture. Come dance with us under the neon lights as we redefine club culture, one beat at a time. *Note: Arab denotes inclusivity of diverse identities and ethnicities within Southwest Asia and North Africa.
