Tunisian band Ifriqiyya Electrique creates a trancelike kind of music, a modern take on traditional ritual ceremonial music. The philosophy beyond it is that by dancing you can cast out all impurities from your body. As if you’re exorcizing the devil by dancing. Ifriqiyya Electrique uses these traditional and spiritual elements at the core, but takes it to a higher dimension with guitars, electronics and samples.
The result is a Tunisian trance with post-industrial sounds and electronics that includes elements from krautrock, ambient, post-pink and noise-rock, The band is always looking for new perspectives, while their live shows naturally focus on dancing. Their music will be released through the label Glitterbeat.
