Ifriqiyya Electrique

Maghreb / Europe

Fusing the hypnotic rhythms of ancient Sub-Saharan ceremonies with a storm of electric guitars, bass and computer effects, Ifriqiyya Electrique bring a frenetic energy to the stage.

This astounding outfit creates a healing ritual of possession and trance, a centuries-old tradition taken to Europe by the former black slaves of North Africa, dissolving the line between performer and audience and encouraging everyone, just as in a nightclub, to forget oneself.
