Raast Collective was created by a group of London raised musicians of varying backgrounds. They first introduced each other to the music and art of their respective cultures and realising the commonalities between them, decided on blending these together. With the flowering of the Arab spring and the addition of new members, the group came into contact with different musicians and other types of artists from around the Arab world. Having always been a loose collective, the group have started work with these artists and have created this blog to showcase both their individual and combined efforts.
