Ninja Tune’s Throwing Shade on mixing Arabic dance with Rihanna at SXSW 2016

This year, FACT TV’s Bryan McKay, Claire Lobenfeld and John Twells packed up and headed to Austin, Texas for South By Southwest 2016 and talked to some of the festival’s most exciting artists.

Ninja Tune artist Throwing Shade is Nabihah Iqbal – a Londoner who has risen via an eclectic bi-weekly radio show on NTS playing everything American street jazz to African field recordings to acclaim as an accomplished producer in her right.

We caught up with Nabihah to hear about her new EP, belief in the healing power of music and love for mixing Arabic music with Rihanna. For more, check out her recent FACT Mix.
