SAINT LEVANT (born Marwan Abdelhamid) is a Palestinian/French/Algerian/Serbian artist. Born in Jerusalem, and raised in Gaza, Saint Levant fuses English, French, and Arabic to bring a truly unique take on modern pop music. Effortless and seductive trilingual wordplay has established him as a breakout global heartthrob. Inspired by influential Arab thinkers from generations past and contemporary artists alike, Saint Levant’s music is nostalgic towards early 2000s R&B/hip-hop, yet intensely forward-thinking, surpassing the limits of genre. With his complex worldview, Saint Levant recently launched the 2048 Fellowship, providing yearly living expenses for young Palestinian creatives, as well as his 2048 label imprint, allowing him to remain an independent artist. The hit song ‘Very Few Friends’ has garnered impossible-to-ignore international attention, with a steady release of new music in anticipation of his debut solo EP, From Gaza, With Love, dropping March 6th, 2023.
