A ‘Chilangohuense-di’ by heart (Mexico City, Chihuahua and Morelia), Abderrahmán Anzaldúa currently lives in New York City with his wife, composer Valeria Jonard. Raised in a chaotic mix between Mexican and Egyptian families, his Mexican-Sunni theologist father and Egyptian-Shia mother created a faithfully agnostic free-thinking son. Abderrahmán Ben-Mohammad Anzaldúa El-Samkary, known loosely as ‘Abdel’, is an active multimedia artist with a high interest in contemporary music. He completed his studies in a variety of institutions which on some unconscious level inspired his lust for music and knowledge. Abdel loves playing music, collaboration projects, meeting new people and drinking beer and tequila.
