SMDCAC presents U.S debut of Band Ifrikya Spirit

Oct 21, 2016, 8:30 PM

This seven-piece band from Algeria stirs the funky soul of Mama Africa with Algerian grooves and West African instruments. The group will make its American debut under the auspices of Center Stage, an exchange program of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

With Ifrikya Spirit cultures of city dwellers and Arabic speakers, Amazigh villagers and Saharan oases, Al-Andalus and French colonials meet, separate and recombine. It stakes its expansive musical tent where West African instruments are welcomed and enjoined with global sensibilities.
