Acid Arab – Performing in New York on Sunday!
Mighty Parisian electronic music crew Acid Arab have been putting European festivals and club audiences under a spell for the last few years, with their intoxicating blend of sharp Western electronic music with Eastern sounds & vocals!
Formed in 2012 by Parisian DJs, Acid Arab patiently honed their style by meeting with scores of artists from all over North Africa and the Middle East. Born in the transcultural cauldron that is Paris, their concept was to create a space for Arab culture in the world of contemporary electronic music.
They laid down groundwork by releasing several EPs (the Collections series) on electronic music label Versatile, featuring collabs, remixes and tracks by other artists. No banging techno spiced up with darbouka samples here… no standard dance music with orientalist clichés: Acid Arab’s music is sincere and deep. Between instruments, rhythms, melodic modes, musical technologies… and people.
US TOUR DATE
Acid Arab will be performing at the end of the week, on June 2nd in New York, as part of the France Rocks Summer Fest 2019!
6/2 @ Knockdown Center – New York, NY – TICKETS
