AMMAR 808

AMMAR 808 takes you to the dark spheres of North African futurism. A musical world full of magical sounds, and inevitable, ultra low bass and heavy beats accompanied by three strong ‘Maghreb’ voices. A fresh, innovative and danceable combination that you don’t often hear.

The group consists of three outstanding singers of the Maghreb: Cheb Hassen (Tunisia), Dhana Saida (Algeria) and Mehdi Nassouli (Morocco) bring an eclectic and integrative mix of electronic percussion and old, traditional styles.

The new album ‘Maghreb United’ was released in April 2018 with the famous Glitterbeat Records label. They were already on Rewire Festival 2018 they’re back with a completely own show!

This is a full-tilt affair, with rumbling basslines matched against exuberant vocals from Nassouli and two Moroccan backing singers on the frantic Layli, and wailing bagpipes backed by relentless percussion on Tej’s Alech Taaadini.
