RANGO

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 This amazing and exotic Sudanese Voodoo collective take their name from the historic and extremely rare instrument, the rango, a type of marimba. Now based in Cairo, they perform trance-inducing Sudanese acoustic dance music from mystic healing ceremonies played on vintage lyres retrofitted with electric pickups and quartertone rango idiophones, accompanied by drummers and ritual percussionists wearing mangor belts fashioned from goat horns. An ancient and truly unique genre.
