Transcontinental Vibrations is bringing another fabulous Saturday night full of music and dance. Recently launched their debut album 'Fihi ma Fihi', BASHKA is a 7 piece ensemble and has been described as "Exotic and Infectiously Danceable". THE IMPRINTS have just returned from their Iceland/Canada tour and ready to move their audiences back at home. BASHKA- "Exotic and Infectiously Danceable"
Musically spanning two continents and many centuries Bashka is about the contrast between east and west, composed and improvised, original and traditional, acoustic and digital. Bashka was created late 2014 by Murat Yucel and Alisha Brooks (Unified Gecko, Baro Banda) both of whom have toured extensively throughout Turkey, Europe and Australia. Having recently joined forces with ELFTranzporter they are well armed to create dancefloor madness, all the while remaining colored with microtones and unique rhythms.
Their live performances are energized with a truly Melbourne sound combined with the delicacy of traditional Turkish instruments and master players. Live samples and loops merge seamlessly with ancient acoustic and modern western instruments to create music which brings to life old folk songs, gypsy ballads and dance music from the dirt streets of old Turkey.
Australian based duo The Imprints weave high-energy violin and drums with synths and electronics to create heavy bass and beats driven dance music.
Playing together for over six years the duo have evolved and re-invented themselves several times playing everything from trip-hop, dub, twenty minute long dreamy improvisations, art-pop and gypsy-folk before finding their signature blend of dance music created live with loop stations every time they perform.
With the pulsating feel of electronic music and the raw live energy of violin and drum kit, The Imprints are known for their slow building, psychedelic tunes that are equally at home in front of a folk festival audience as they are on an electronic festival stage. They've performed festivals and headline shows in the UK, Europe, Greenland, Canada, Asia and Australia with highlights including Glastonbury (UK) and Fusion Festival (Germany).
