Adorcist & Post-Industrial Ritual.
Devils, Possession & Trance.
Djerid desert, Sahara, Tunisia.
April 2019 : release new album "Laylet el Booree", Glitterbeat Records.
Fusing the rhythms and invocations of the ancient Saharan Banga ritual with an electrical storm of contemporary sonics, Ifriqiyya Electrique's second album both grips and awakens. In Tunisian, Banga means "huge volume" and one cannot think of a more apt description of Laylet el Booree than that.
Africa, from ADORCISM to Noise to Experimental to Industrial to Electronic to Techno to World to Hip-Hop to Dance-floor to Metal to Pogo to FEMINISM. No Churches (neither Musical ones) but Free-Spirits.
Some past Rituals: Sziget, Roskilde, Vieilles Charrues, Nuits Sonores, Pohoda, FMM Sines, Colours of Ostrava, Notte della Taranta, Ariano Folk Festival...
Laylet el Booree. Maximalist & relentless. Blood, Sweat & Trance.
