Ex-Centric Sound System

Biography

Begun by Yossi Great (an Israeli bassist who all is a program participant since he was 16 and that has collaborated with David Bowie and Me’Shell NdegéOcello, amongst others) and Nana Dadzie (a prince from the Fante tribe in Ghana who all founded Susuma, a well-known African drumming and dance troupe), Ex-Centric AUDIO SYSTEM extended to envelop a complete world of music noises. The efforts of fellow bandmembers Benjamin “Sai” Kouelho, a Ghanian percussionist, dancer, and flute participant; Michael Avgil, a Moroccan-Israeli snare drummer; and Adevo Savour, who provides djembe, flutes, bells, and vocals, help provide a bottom for an environment of noises and examples that range between Ethiopian choirs to Jamaican dub beats. Ex-Centric AUDIO SYSTEM targets the sound from the African diaspora, using vocals within the languages of this diaspora, including Kreyol, Ga, Ewe, Fante, Tutsi, Hutu, and British, in lyrics that end up nestled using the various other organic equipment amid a number of dance beats and digital processes. The effect is certainly complicated, but rarely appears muddled, as the music is certainly laid-back and includes enough room to buffer the babel of audio. Their debut record, Electric powered Voodooland (2000), was documented at Fine’s studio room, Ruler Solomon’s Shack, which acquired the type of calm atmosphere essential to provide birth with their diverse sound. pursuing that debut, they released Western world Nile Funk (2004) and Afro Riddim Program, Vol. 1 (2006).
