Nour Harkati / Max ZT
Singer, songwriter, and producer, Nour Harkati is a nomad of music. Wandering through a collection of sounds, his songs weave a complex and colorful tapestry. While born and raised in Tunisia, he has spent the greater part of the past years overseas performing in Paris, Berlin, and most recently New York City. Baptized in a family of musicians, Nour yearned to expand his voice beyond customary traditions. He opened his ears to as many sounds as he could. Through his travels he experiments with new textures using music to discover the world that surrounds him. Nour sings of existence in society, doubt and mistrust, continuous departures, the lust of love, and unequivocal joy. Within these themes he delves deeper into his roots, becoming closer to himself.
A Chicago native who now calls Brooklyn home, Max developed his unique sound through years of study as far afield as Senegal and India. With his band, House of Waters, he’s shared stages with the likes of Ravi Shankar, Tinariwen, Jimmy Cliff, Bela Fleck, and Victor Wooten, scored an Emmy-winning documentary, and released two critically acclaimed albums on Snarky Puppy’s GroundUP Music label.
