Isam Bachiri (Arabic: عصام بشيري - born 1 August 1977) is a Danish vocalist, rapper and songwriter of Moroccan descent. Formerly a member of the hip hop group Outlandish, he has worked as a solo artist in recent years.

Early life

Isam Bachiri is a Muslim of Riffian descent born in 1977 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Bachiri came into contact with music in his youth through the developing hip hop scene and subculture in America.

Career

Between 1997 and 2017 Bachiri joined Waqas Ali Qadri and Lenny Martinez to form the Danish hip-hop group Outlandish, drawing upon the influences of their respective ethnic heritage, and in particular the Islamic faith of two of the band members.

'Ramadan in Copenhagen' in the Højskolesangbogen

In May 2019, a group of artists met to suggest songs for inclusion in the Danish Højskolesangbogen (folk highschool songbook) in order to better represent the nation's cultural diversity. Isam was one of the artists who participated in this meeting and discussion, and his song 'Ramadan i København' (Ramadan in Copenhagen) was one of the songs proposed for inclusion.

This led to some controversy, with the Danish People's Party using a social media post to object to the song's inclusion. Isam has since defended its inclusion, and notes the "great honour" of being included in the book, despite criticisms he has received as a result.
