Dhafer Youssef is one of the most exciting voices to emerge on the European jazz scene, combining Middle Eastern traditions with contemporary sounds, uniting jazz improvisation, ethnic roots, funk grooves and electronics. In Digital Prophecy, Dhafer traces a journey from Tunisia's heat to Norway's cool, drawing together the warmth and emotions of Sufi, the vast soundscapes of Norway and the melodic traditions of the Mediterranean. The line-up features some of Europe’s most inspiring and progressive musicians including Supersilent’s Arve Henriksen. Youssef’s performances have been described as completely mesmerising. "the kind of gig you watched and prayed would never end, charged with such magic that you knew you would be telling people about it in years to come." Straight no Chaser More info
