Neben den “Balkan Beats” und den “Techno Türken” fegt eine neue Partywelle durch Berlin: Achtung!Hafla. “Hafla” bedeutet im Mittelmeersprachraum „Lasst uns gemeinsam feiern!“. Als kulturelles Ereignis ist es in Ländern wie der Türkei, Griechenland, Syrien, Ägypten, Libanon und anderen Gegenden des Fruchtbaren Halbmonds bekannt. Bei einer „Hafla“ wird meist die ganze Nacht zu einer endlosen Jamsession verschiedener Musiker gefeiert – eine echte Flucht vor dem (All)tag.

Mit der wachsenden Popularität nahöstlicher Musik in Europa hat der Veranstalter Anaphora Records beschlossen, auch in Berlin zur „Hafla“ einzuladen. Bei „Achtung:// Hafla!“ treten die aufregendsten Musiker dieses Genres in den besten Locations der Stadt auf.

Headliner im Urban Spree ist der charmant-provokante Elektro Hafiz. Der experimentierfreudige Kölner aus Istanbul mixt sich wild durch die nahöstliche Instrumentenkiste und hat natürlich seine elektronische Saz dabei. Der Berliner Geheimtipp Halla-B sorgt mit seinen Synthesizer-basierten, aufputschenden Performances für die perfekte musikalische Szenerie einer Berlin-spezifischen Hafla.

Dazu liefert DJ Badre sein Sammelsurium fein abgestimmter und dabei höchst diverser Sets.
