Description
Featuring members of Gang Wizard, Friends Forever and the infamous International Voice of Reason, LA-based Foot Village have described themselves as the "loudest Acoustic Rock Band Ever." Heavily concept-based, their foundation-myth depicts Foot Village being the first nation built after the foreseeable apocalypse, erecting civilization anew with drums and voices alone - no guitars, no electronics, no amplification (other than via megaphone). Key proponents of the Los Angeles DIY scene centred around The Smell, their brilliant live performances (with drums set up on the floor in the midst of the audience) are compelling spectacles of pure energy exchange. Their unplugged post-hardcore assault is anchored in the now of ecstatic energy, propelled by an inherent momentum and sudden dramatic shifts. Super Khoumeissa is a group of six musicians and four dancers from Gao, on the banks of the Niger River in the north of Mali. Though active since 1990 in various forms, this is their first official release Super Khoumeissa are the premier representatives of Takamba, the most widespread musical style in Northern Mali. The group play traditional three-stringed instruments known as the Tehardent or Ngoni which are amplified to both augment and distort the sound, and the traditional gourd percussion instrument known as the Calabasse; they combine to produce crowd-captivating dynamics.
