This is a solidarity party supporting Borgofuturo, an association based in the small village of Ripe San Ginesio (Marche, Italy). Its action is aimed at reflecting about possible alternative societies and economies out of the consumerist model.

Thu 21 June > Rebel Up Soundclash @ OCCII, Amsterdam w/ The Dwarfs Of East Agouza & Babylon Trio

This thursday evening, a night of Arabic soundclash, choubi choubi & electro chaabi

The Dwarfs of East Agouza أقزام شرق العجوزة
Instrumental / Improvisation-based / North African percussion loops / Shimmering keys / West African tinged free jazz guitar / Krautrock-style acoustic bass.

Hailing from the Agouza district of Cairo, Egypt, this brilliant trio consists of Alan Bishop (Acoustic Bass & Alto Sax), Maurice Louca (Keyboards & Drum Machine) and Sam Shalabi (Electric Guitar). In collaboration with Annihaya records, the Akuphone label is very proud to present “Rats Don’t Eat Synthesizers” the long-awaited second album by the Dwarfs of East Agouza.

Following their acclaimed first album “Bes “, this new long play is composed of two hypnotic journeys: “Rats Don’t Eat Synthesizers” and “Ringa Mask Koshary” which was recorded in Cairo in September of 2015. Mesmerizing electric guitar parts, frenetic beats, both supported by the deep sound of Alan’s acoustic bass create a new magical Egyptian soundscape. Vinyl version is a limited edition with a beautiful hot-foil stamped sleeve that magnifies the red metallic rats and a wonderful printed inner sleeve.

Maurice Louca (keyboards/electronics) (Lekhfa, Alif, Bikya)
Sam Shalabi (electric guitar/synth) (Land of Kush, Shalabi Effect)
Alan Bishop (guitar/saxophone/vocals) Sun City Girls, The Invisible Hands, Alvarius B., SUBLIME FREQUENCIES)
