Mediterranean groove party in Berlin
“Hafla”, in the Mediterranean languages, means party together. It is a cultural event, common in countries such as, Turkey, Greece, Syria, Israel, Egypt, Lebanon and other areas in the Fertile Crest. The “Hafla” often involve several instruments playing together the traditional songs but also jamming and inviting other people from the crowd to play along. The “Hafla” usually went all night long, taking the crowd to a world full of music and joy- a true escapism from the day-to-day life. With the growing popularity of middle-eastern music in Europe, we decided to have our own « Hafla » in Berlin that will take place at Urban Spree. Here is what we plan for you:
ACID ARAB (FR)
Acid Arab is a duet from Paris whose goal is to mix all kind of Eastern music (North Africa, Lebanon, Egypt, Turkeyor… Mumbai) with electronic sounds, from pioneering acid house to today’s powerful techno. Guido Minisky and Hervé Carvalho, both dis for many years and residents of infamous Parisian club Chez Moune, have fallen in love with this music after a trip to Tunisia with Dj Gilb’R. After much anticipation, we are happy to introduce Acid Arab crew on our first Hafla.
For the opening act we will have the secret Chala-Bi Duo making their premier show on our Hafla. The Duo will provide us with some Middle-Eastern psychedelic sounds to get us all in the right mood.
