Multiflora Fest Presents Group Doueh at Tropicalia
The now legendary Group Doueh have been playing in and around their native Dakhla, in the Western Sahara for over 27 years. The discovery of the group by Sublime Frequencies , via a song snatched from a AM radio broadcast in Morocco in 2005 (as well as an exploratory mission in 2006 that landed Hisham Mayet in the groups compound after chasing an overland trail all the way to the Mauritanian border) sealed the bands relationship with the label. A successful European tour with label mate Omar Souleyman in 2009 ensued and western audiences were finally able to witness the power of the groups mighty live shows. Douehs guitar heroics and wife Halima Jakani and Bashiri Touballis soaring vocal interplay entranced all who were present. In 2010 Doueh hosted Tony Allen in his home town and joined in on some of his dates in Europe. Then they returned to Europe in triumph in May 2011 with new album Zunya Jamma in tow, delivering a blistering set at the Animal Collective ATP and sending the atmosphere skybound everywhere they travelled including a heroic USA tour in 2011 that entranced all American audiences alike.

One the festivals finest feelgood moments  snaking, mesmeric guitar playing  Doueh and family made the entire room glow with folk chants and electrified stomps - Spin

The savage flipside to the careworn sound of Tinariwen  unity of place, traditional instrumentation and source material helps it weave an otherworldly spell - Uncut
