AUTOSTRAD is a Jordanian world-reggae-funk band formed in 2007. Fronted by Yazan AlRousan - vocal, Hamza Arnaout- guitar, Wisam Qatawneh - keyboard, Avo Demerjian- bass, Bashar Abdelghani- saxophone, and Burhan Ali- drum. The group members came together shortly after the big hit Yazan Al Rousan’s first solo album, Telfizion, received. On a local level, singing with the Jordanian local slang, they aim at introducing a new genre to the music scene in addition to the only existing one- the Traditional Song. The group members’ collective experiences are present in Autostrad original tunes and expressive lyrics, their first album "Yazan Al Rousan in Autostad" gained a wide fan base among the Jordanian youth because it innovatively corresponds to their daily life.
