For the first time in the UK, Culturama brings you the amazing SIDI BEMOL live!
Doors open 7:30. Event starts at 8:30.
Surprising by the richness of his music, Sidi Bémol (a.k.a. Hocine Boukella or Cheikh for the fans) is the composer of fusion: between modernity and tradition, between chaabi, gnawa, blues and rock, Berber and Celtic music.
Changing languages over the albums -Arabic, Kabyle, French and English-, his texts are meaningful, successively poetic, nostalgic, critical, humorous. He depicts society with much tenderness and lucidity…
In an explosive show at the cool ULU venue, Sidi Bemol will make you sway, smile, dance and sing! A SHOW NOT TO BE MISSED!
