UK tour of Syrian legend Omar Souleyman and the Western Saharan Group Doueh, supported by Sound and Music

Sublime Frequencies travel the globe, digging deep for overlooked and forgotten music, looking for artists and groups that move their souls, and making strong connections with musicians and music lovers wherever they go. Folk and pop musicians are sought out, documented and released on the Sublime Frequencies record label, capturing ultra-vivid sights and sounds from rural life and urban street. Radio broadcasts, field recordings and lost archives are also assembled into CD and vinyl releases, all presented in a genuinely thrilling and unabashed style. This tour follows in that tradition. Street-level folk-pop, over-driven psychedelic meditations, desert blues and Syrian party bangers are all combined with films and DJs on this once in a lifetime Sublime Frequencies tour experience.

This is the first ever Sublime Frequencies tour. It brings to the UK two live acts who have released albums on the Sublime Frequencies label; Group Doueh (from the Western Sahara) and Omar Souleyman (from Syria) plus Sublime Frequencies DJ sets. The label are presenting some of the greatest expressive music in the world with only one agenda in mind: that it needs to be heard or seen, respected and recognised. This is a rare opportunity to see the two maverick and genuinely great groups from vastly different traditions and influences playing on the same bill.
