another special Rebel Up! Soundclash night at Bonnefooi and this time we go to the eastern mediterranean for some arabic spheres!
with special guest Tropikal Camel (ISR / Berlin)
Hailing from Jerusalem, currently living in Berlin, the grandson of Jewish immigrants from Morocco, Austria, Iraq and Kurdistan and growing up with hearing hebrew, arabic, french and german around him, Roi ‘Rocky’ Asayag is a true mix of Jewish and Arab bloodlines. His Tropikal Camel project is a musical mirror of a seminal journey into his Arabic roots. Soul-searching through his intricate identity, he takes us from Kurdistan and Iraq to Morocco. This is how Tropikal Camel is born; an Arab Jew chasing the lost connection to his Arab culture. Dressed in a Moroccon Kaftan cloak, he becomes a witch doctor, a master of ceremony of a musical journey that tries to raise questions and purify the spirit. His vibrant sound is a maze of dense arabic spheres from the past and present, heavy dancehall bass and tropical electro. https://soundcloud.com/rocky-b http://www.rockybb.org/ https://www.mixcloud.com/2403832/
His new single at Shouka records from Tunis: https://soundcloud.com/ssshouka/sets/tropikal-camel-black-panther
