A producer and percussionist from Tunisia, now living in Copenhagen, Nuri is one of the upcoming promising musicians of African futurism, mixing deep bass, organic percussion with polyrhythmic grooves, sharing bills with names like Clap Clap and Dengue Dengue Dengue.
Recently he released his debut album on Shouka, a label focusing on traditional music and contemporary electronic from North Africa and beyond. ‘’Drup’’ is a tribute to Tunisian’s African heritage, and a bridge to other traditions, replete with percussions and vocals from all over the mother continent, but also from Asia, combined with digital work to constitute an amalgam of then and now.
On stage Nuri is a masked witch doctor, conducting a deep ritual which is a journey into the lost roots of his homeland. Heritage, Tribalism, Organic sounds, melodies, and a pack of emotions.
