Electric Jalaba 

Moroccan deep psychedelia & groove…

We can’t wait to have Electric Jalaba on our stage! Now signed to legendary afro/jazz label Strut Records, Electric Jalaba play traditional songs about colourful spirits, mysterious women, men that divide oceans and armies of conquerors; weaved amongst enormous infectious grooves, analogue effects and warped guitars.

Loving the release, we need to get them in the studio!” – Gilles Peterson, BBC 6 MUSIC

Frenetic Anglo-Moroccan sextet infuse gnawa trance rituals with Comet Is Coming-style synth-jazz prophecies. Good attitude!” Uncut

Bringing the otherworldly sounds of electronic trance music to Moroccan ritual gnawa.” – New Internationalist


More electronic than most live bands, more live than most electronic bands… 

Support comes from the toon’s own local legends GREY TAPES! A collective of beat-makers and producers, they keep live electronic music truly live. No clicks, sequencers or backing tracks. If you’ve not seen them before, you’re in for a treat! We can’t wait to have them back, it’s been a long lock-down with out them!
