TAQBIR ‘Victory Belongs To Those Who Fight For A Cause’

Jun 21, 2021 | Punk, Reviews

A pugilistic missile of Moroccan origin

La Vida Es Un Mus Discos (Discos Punk) are punk rock saviours: the London based label keep defying the odds and hitting the jackpot with some of the best the scene has to offer. Taqbir’s Victory Belongs To Those Who Fight For The Right Cause is no exemption to the label’s win rate and reputation. This pugilistic missile of Moroccan origin – and sang in Moroccan Arabic – lashes out at religion and an oppressive patriarchal society in spectacular style. Left in its abrasive demo format, these four tracks are a reminder, if one was needed, of the power of punk rock, and the drive some artists have to create in intensely challenging circumstances. Taqwacore is here to stay.
