Tonight the Echo Chamber once again embarked on a “Magic Dub Carpet Ride”: a musical journey to the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey, and the Indian subcontinent (with a couple of side-trips as well). So we loaded up our hookah and let the winds carry us on a dubwise ride from Cairo to Tehran…from Rajasthan to Jerusalem…from New Delhi to Marrakesh. Among the artists that joined us on this dubwise carpet ride were: The Natacha Atlas & Marc Eagleton Project, Sub Dub, The Bombay Dub Orchestra, Hamza el Din, Jai Uttal (ft. Don Cherry), Thomas Blondet, Fedayi Pacha, Sussan Deyhim, Midival Pundits, The Toure-Raichel Collective (from the new “The Paris Session” on Cumbancha), Dub Colossus, Cheb i Sabbah, Up Bustle & Out, Once 11, Tipsy, The Orb & Lee Scratch Perry, Niyaz, Debruit & Alsarah, Simon Shaheen & Qantara, and more. Also in the mix was a 20+ minute excerpt from the excellent Mixcloud “Arabic Spring” mix from maikO.Geisha. Quite a strange, intoxicatiing trip indeed!
