Four acts connect eight different countries. Australian-Polish outfit Lotto create hypnotic, slowly evolving pieces using bass (Mike Majkowski), guitar (Łukasz Rychlicki) and drums (Paweł Szpura). Formed in Cairo, The Dwarfs of East Agouza is Alan Bishop, Maurice Louca and Sam Shalabi, creating music influenced by North African drums, free jazz, West African traditions, krautrock and more. Ripping into the second part of the night is Denmark’s Puce Mary with a noise show full of experimentation, risk and emotive power. Iran’s Sote follows, his music driven by disruptive polyrhythmic constructions that strive to create “the other sound” – music without a specific culture.
