INNOV GNAWA (LIVE)

$10 advance tickets are now available: https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1160263
We are proud to present our first ever official Pique-nique party in collaboration with Trans-Pecos, one of our favorite venues in New York City.
Our good friends Innov Gnawa bring their full 6-piece line up to perform a very special set of hypnotic, rhythmic, and soaring Gnawa music, led by the legendary Maallem Hassan Ben Jafaar. Coming off the back of a sold out 'Lila' and their debut release with Pique-nique Recordings/Remix Culture, Innov Gnawa's intimate shows are currently gaining a lot of attention and are not to be missed.
Also joining us is NYC's own globetrotting, all encompassing DJ/ Producer,Nickodemus (Wonderwheel Recordings). Fresh from a six week spring tour which spanned the Worldwide Festival in Leysin, to 'Turntables on the Nile' in Cairo, Nico will be bringing home his typically mind expanding, celebratory music from all over the world.
Innov Gnawa and Nickodemus are two of New York's most established artists, constantly pushing the boundaries of their respective genres and finding ever expanding audiences as they go. For the first time, they both come to Trans Pecos for a uniquely curated pairing of sounds and styles, both new and traditional. Pique-nique Recordings' own Jackson Mico & Jared Proudfoot will be warming up the night from 7pm.
To honor the release of 'Toura Toura,' a limited 12-inch from Innov Gnawa /Mr Assister (1-800-Dinosaur) and the first ever release on Pique-nique Recordings, Mr Assister himself and Jackson Mico (Pique-nique) will be spinning wordly delights all night long, downstairs at Hammerschlagen at The DOT, Hackney on the 18th of March.
