Meet Amir Alqarqaz, a Spotify playlist curator from Dallas, Texas.
Where Are You From?
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
oh wow this is a hard one... Born to Die- The Paradise Edition by Lana Del Rey, Frank by Amy Winehouse, Mama’s gun by Erykah Badu, Naked Truth by Lil Kim, Here Comes the Sun by Nina Simone, I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! by Janis Joplin, 4 by Beyoncé, and Intro To by Dounia are some of my absolute favorites. I play them almost daily.
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to and why?
Definitely Kendrick Lamar at Austin City Limits. His pure and unadulterated energy was infectious and I felt truly alive. It was as if I was one with the music.
If you were a singer, what current living artist would you like to collaborate with?
Lana Del Rey for sure. I feel like she has such a powerful grasp on music itself and is influenced by so many musical genres that she’s able to blend seamlessly with anyone and everyone to create pure bliss
What artist, dead or alive, who would you interview and why?
I’d have to go with the entire 27 club. I feel that the likes of Amy Winehouse, Jim Morison, Janis Joplin Kurt Cobain, and Jimi Hendrix all had so much to say but so little time to say it. I feel like they hold so much knowledge about life and I’d love to tap into that.
What is the last song you listened to?
Time Machine by Willow
