Orchestre National de Barbès

En Concert


Tired of the same old planet? Orchestre National de Barbès mixes the little-exploited traditional sounds of North Africa and simmers them in a stew of recognizable bits and pieces from elsewhere to arrive at something completely pan-cultural. If you’re intrigued at all by African and Arabic music, this is something which you’re guaranteed to like in a completely unexpected manner. The energy audible in this live recording is enough to turn a crowd of thousands into a seething, surging mass, I’m sure, so play with care.
