Brazilian duo based in Lisbon since 2019, Ricardo Don and Denny Azevedo have been involved in the most important Brazilian street festivals.

TAMIKREST 

Desert-blues for fans of Can and Pink Floyd to sink their teeth into.” -MOJO
Rock ‘n roll out of the Azawad region. It’s pure, perfect rock bliss, a reminder of how music can speak with such a towering voice and why Tamikrest have become one of the best rock’n’roll bands in the world. That’s a big title to carry. But their latest album, Tamotaït proves they’re worthy of it. This album is what rock’n’roll can be. Music as a weapon of hope. Songs as a vessel of truth.

AL-QASAR

Rock The Souk! “Arabian fuzz” band AL-QASAR. 
Their first EP was Recorded between Cairo, Paris, Los Angeles, and Nashville and this says a lot about the band. Al-Qasar fuses old school psychedelic garage rock with traditional instruments of the Arab world. Electric guitars and fuzz pedals encounter the oud, Ludwig drum kits shred along the darbuka, saz and mizmar. The socially conscious lyrics in classical Arabic speak of power, oppression, and the refugee experience, but also of liberty and passion.
