TAXI KEBAB ‘Visions al 2ard’

Jun 24, 2022 | Electronica, Reviews

A unique blend of tradition & untethered vision

Last year, Real World RecordsPeter Gabriel’s long-standing imprint – launched Real World X, a new venture bringing yet more diversity to their already expansive roster. Releases have been rapid and include Les Amazones D’Afrique who we loved at Primavera. Here we focus on Taxi Kebab, the mesmerising French/Moroccan duo.

Leïla Jiqqir and Romain Henry’s debut EP cements their ability to take disparate influences and create a unique hybrid of tradition and untethered vision. Jiqqir reclaims her Moroccan father’s Darija’s language to layer soaring vocals onto Henry’s cocktail of pulsing kosmische and beguiling electronics. Another key component being the snaking lines of amplified Buzuq.

The ripples of melody can soon hit like a tsunami once you’re inside the music. Just let Visions al 2ard wrap itself around you.
