Bedouin brings their Ibiza showcase home to Brooklyn to continue the SAGA December 15th. SAGA is a musical odyssey, feeding the senses and elevating the collective experience. An infectious blend of music that has hypnotized audiences across the globe comes to Brooklyn to Avant Gardner, where the Saga and Cityfox teams will transform the space to recreate the series’ atmosphere and vibe.
Bedouin is a Brooklyn-based production & DJ partnership between nomads Rami Abousabe and Tamer Malki who are creating their own idiosyncratic spell of melodies and rhythms. Together they share an eclectic sonic vision that pulls from diverse influences owing to their Middle Eastern heritage, Western upbringing, and world travels. Their combined musical backgrounds and ever-evolving taste captures the sensibility of imagination and constantly explores the connection between ourselves and the future.
LUM is above all a spiritual encounter, a ritual séance for the acquisition of one’s essence, a ceremony. In a way, it’s also a therapy alleviating personal sorrows and, well, by extension, mitigating the civilizational predicaments. To a certain degree, it’s a course in tribal culturology. Fundamentally, it is LUM’s dream. LUM actually lived those spiritualities. More specifically, Sebastian Gandine has been for years observing how music is integrated into native cultures, identifying its social functions, acquainting himself with its principles, learning instruments, recording sounds, participating in various rites — in the range from passage to burial — and reinterpreting his multiple findings in the paradigm of digital technologies. There is much more to it what makes LUM an act so extraordinary and so stupendous. We learn his music originates in his near-death experience dating back to his late adolescence. LUM surprises us by asserting that this experience has been his most astounding, enlightening and liberating trip ever taken, its traumatology notwithstanding. He recalls himself abandoning his body and dissolving into a pure free-flowing consciousness, released from mundane practical concerns, unplugged from the time-space-causality matrix. With the chronometry no longer intrinsically applicable, the ineffable durée could have lasted a nanosecond or millions of years. He remembers the displeasure of recombination and awkwardness of reconnection with his body, his short-circuiting with its basic needs, conditioned reflexes, crude cravings and “robotic” functions.
About Zigan Aldi:
He was born in a small village in the eastern part of Turkey. As he was a small boy he was the smallest sepherd of his familie. He moved to Germany as he was 14 years old. He was always open for different experiences. Therefore he actually did a lot of jobs from cooking to taxi driving in Berlin. He has always been ambitious for music. Especially different sounds of cultures from all over the world. He followed his feelings and desire and gave himself to eclectic- electro music at the end. Now he is releasing on Bedouins imprint True Colors, and other labels like Underyourskin Records, Aker Records, 3000 Grad Records.
Although Collé may seem to be a newcomer, his experience is most certainly not. With years of producing many different music styles, his involvement and interest in people and cultures, Collé is ready to bring his music to a next level. Sharing his unique sound, which has a lot of emotion and depth into it, feels like a new way of expressing himself through his music.
