Remarkable Current History

Founded in 2001, Remarkable Current is an American artist collective consisting of musicians, writers and producers who are bonded not only by their love for music and art but also by their shared Islamic-American tradition.

In the last decade, the collective has grown from a group of friends in a basement to a nation-wide collaboration of artists and activists who share the same goal: to creatively shape the contemporary American Muslim identity and share it with the world community.  Remarkable Current delivers tour de force performances with the mission to excel, to uplift and to inspire.

Founded and directed by Anas Canon, Remarkable Current (RC) has toured the world, performing from the Americas to Europe, Africa and the Middle East.  Canon, who was recently included in the first edition of the 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World [a publication of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talaal Center for Muslim-christian Understanding of Georgetown University], has worked with hundreds of gifted artists and released over 10 full-length albums that span close to a decade (with 4 new releases slated over the next 6 months).

Remarkable Current’s musical styles reflect the multi-faceted backgrounds of the artists.  While the main focus of the music is urban, the artists are also influenced by Rock, Jazz, Opera and traditional World Music.  RC is a passionate modern fusion of styles that represents the blend that is Islamic-American musical culture today.
