Rebel Up! and les ateliers claus present:

Ifriqiyya Electrique (tu)

Djerid, Sahara, between the salt desert and the oases of the Tunisian South. IFRIQIYYA ELECTRIQUE is a peculiar band. More than a concert, it’s the real adorcist rite of Sidi Marzûq practised by the Banga community, the former Haussas black slaves, which is performed.

"The devils are communicating with computers & electric guitars to recompose this ancient adorcist rite of possession and trance. No music note and no tempo were changed, for a transcendental now postindustrial ceremony."

These are not concerts but rites. The spirits possess bodies, asking to be fed through a music of obvious modernity : from Djerid until Ibiza discos or Moscow rock clubs, the need to forget oneself, to rise above life's tedium, is absolutely identical.
