Aïsha Devi in Budapest

Saturday, 27.02.2016 – Saturday, 27.02.2016

The ninth installment of Trafó’s ELECTRIFY series takes us through Aïsha Devi’s Nepalese-Tibetan trans-music, the data-based modernist ambient of TCF and Helm’s evocative aural landscapes.

Laying her Kate Wax moniker to rest after releases on Trevor Jackson’s Output and James Holden’s Border Community, the enigmatic Swiss Aïsha Devi set forth on a new adventure with Danse Noire, her own sanctuary-label in 2013 dropping her EP Aura 4 Everyone. Devi’s own music mines her Nepalese-Tibetan heritage, using her machines to transmute deep meditation. Whether they are guttural or soprano, Devi’s warped pop mantras instruct us to find the unseen through a tense, visceral musical landscape that is often gnarled and industrial as it is danceable. Her debut LP ‘Of Matter And Spirit’, a “materialisation of her initiatic journey through her spiritual and origin quests”, was released last October through Houndstooth and was met with great success.
