Turkish-born and Berlin-based, Ah! Kosmos has already established her interstellar footprint in the world of experimental music and performance. True to her stage moniker, Gunak’s music is otherworldly. Like a soundtrack to the stars, she creates beats and rhythms that sound as if they have travelled space and back. Her intergalactic tunes have graced the stages of the Barbican in London, Venice Electro festival, Tokyo Electronic Music and Arts Festival, and countless others.

An alumni of the Red Bull Music Academy, this will be Gunak’s first performance in Kuwait, and her second in the region.
