Organ The of The Day: A quick one today for there is fruit to pick and places to be, we need some huge volume, we need different voices, different flavours, we’ve covered them here before, we need a band who are “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. Maximalist & relentless. Blood, sweat & trance….”.

Ifriqiyya Electrique are from the Djerid desert, Sahara, Tunisia, they talk of post-Industrial ritual, of fusing rhythms and ritual songs from the Djerid desert and blending them with beats, electronics and guitars, they have a new album in April. More details here via their Bandcamp
