WORM and Pantropical proudly host this year’s official Arab Film Festival afterparty. Cheb Gero from the Parisian Akuphone label, Rebel Up Duckfood and Discourse will DJ fantastic old and new dance tunes from the Arab world.

CHEB GERO (fr | Akuphone)
Cheb Gero (Fabrice Gery) is a music lover who runs the international Akuphone label from Paris. Fabrice’s DJ alias illustrates the diversity of the musical worlds he shares: ‘Cheb’ is a homage to Algerian Raï singers, whereas ‘Gero’ refers to the Japanese noise cult band of the same name, and to his own surname. His DJ sets consist of a broad range of music; Arab, African, and (South East) Asian folk, grooves and beats.

✹ DUCKFOOD (roffa | Pantropical, Rebel Up)
Duckfood’s awe-inspiring music collection absorbs anything from Renaissance to Moroccan trance. His DJ selections are colourful and not preoccupied by categorization. Because of his love for the Maghreb and Arab music he is hellbent to make something extra special of this evening.
