Bedouine on Solitude, Syria & Reality TV

January 1, 201833 min
Azniv Korkejian, aka Bedouine, was born in Aleppo, Syria and lived on an American compound in Saudi Arabia until she was 10. Korkejian talks about the difference between life inside those compound walls and life outside in the rest of Saudi Arabia, how she adjusted to her family's move to the US when she was a kid and how she's translated her nomadic spirit into a very charming self-titled debut as Bedouine. She also reveals what it was like to work as a sound editor for reality television shows, and performs live in studio with producer Gus Seyffert.
