Auto Shows Al-Qasar, Eric Serra, The Romeo Sextape… the playlist of the music book of “Liberation”
The Most Significant "Debuts" of the Canceled 2020 Geneva Auto Show
Coronavirus fears shut down the show, but automakers debuted these viral rides anyway.But even without a physical venue, the show must—and did—go on. Many new cars that were set to make their debut at the Geneva auto show were still revealed digitally online, and some automakers even put on virtual press conferences live-streamed to the web. Geneva has historically been the show where automakers debut their fastest, most exclusive, most high-tech, [insert any other relevant superlatives here] new production models and concept cars, and this year's remote event was no exception.
Each weekend, Tsugi's webradio accompanies the music notebook of "Liberation". The discovery
Until then, these days, from Deena Abdelwahed to our Acid Arab through the Arabstazy compilations, the favorite playing field of Orientalo-Maghreb music was working with electronic machines. Until then, we said it well. Because Al-Qasar comes to reshuffle the cards magnificently by proposing a fusion based, it, not on the beat of a TB-303, but on the clatter of guitars plating themselves on ouds in trance. At the origin of the project discovered on stage during the Transmusicales of Rennes 2018, a frantic guitarist producer, the Franco-American Thomas Attar Bellier, who invites the Moroccan musician and singer gnawa Jaouad El Garouge to imagine a boiling music between fuzz and darbouka, as punk as psychedelic. A perfect example with the kick-off of their first EP, Miraj, by the stunning Ahlan wa Sahlan where the rhythm section pounded a surge of traditional instruments. Recorded between Nashville, Paris, Los Angeles and Cairo, this seven-track takes up the torch, long gone, of the rock-Maghreb mixture, initiated by the Carte de Séjour by Rachid Taha then popularized worldwide by the Clash of Rock The Casbah. Also accompanied by shoe sizes like the Franco-Algerian Mehdi Haddab or the Egyptian Mohamed Abozekry, and using Bedouin instruments like the arghoul (a kind of double flute) or the kaval (oblique reed flute), Attar Bellier is certainly respectful of tradition but bringing it a healthy dose of modernity. Will the new Arab revolutions be musical? Patrice Bardot

Miraj, EP (The Arabian Fuzz)The playlist
Theo Hakola, So Bad (Mating Mind Mix)
Figure of French rock of the 80s with Red Orchestra then Passion Fodder, the Franco-American Theo Hakola recently returned with a new album. This successful remix of one of the best titles on the disc gives it a real boost.
Roy Ayers, Ali Shaheed Muhammad & Adrian Younge, Gravity
Benefactors' association: the jazz-soul legend is surrounded by a Tribe Called Quest and the producer of Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar. On a slightly salsa rhythm, a retrofuturistic manifesto bursting with a vibrant sap, carried by singer Joi Gilliam. Team work.
Eric Serra, The Big Blue Overture (Maud Geffray Remix)
Theme of course taken from the film of the same name, which has led so many people to practice freediving in their bathtub. But the original muzak saw is skillfully reworked by the electronic producer in a more punchy version. You could almost hear a dolphin singing.
The Romeo Sextape, Interquaalude
A young wanking duo that combines MD and variety. French pop, vaguely rap, well exploded, where we hear as much the echo of the idols 80 Jakie Quartz and Buzy as that of Yelle or Therapy Taxi. A nice wacky mess, with the power of a mini tube anyway.
Captain Planet, Big Man (feat. Shungudzo)
Behind this childish superhero name hides a New York DJ globetrotter seduced by the sounds of Caribbean steel drums and the African balafon, as we understand with this efficient candy with a global groove, worn by the Zimbabwean singer Shungudzo.
