The Banga is an ancient musical tradition from the southern Tunisian desert that features stark, metallic percussion and grouped voices of cool urgency. It is also a ritual where spirits are coaxed and invited to possess one's body and mind. Ifriqiyya Electrique is a conversation between the rhythms and chants of the band's three Banga musicians and guitar, bass and electronics. They call it a "post-industrial ceremony." It
won't be an easy listen for purists and propagandists; but if post-industrial ceremony doesn't describe a large portion of the most challenging music of the last 40 years, what does?

Also available: RUWAHINE (CD).
