Diaspora Hi-Fi / Watcha Clan

Watcha Clan - Diaspora Hi-Fi


From the cultural melting pot of Marseille this release (their third) with songs in French, Arabic, Hebrew, Yiddish , English and Spanish is a vibrant mix of Arab, Balkan and Mediterranean influences that are further evolved through a mix of various dance beats from dub to electronic which includes amongst the  samples Fanfare Ciocarlia and The Klezmatics. There’s a lot going on here so repeat listenings are required to get the full range and feel of things but the more you find the more you enjoy, I bet they are equally good live.
