Insan (Human), is a new album that voices human stories, which are multi-faceted, often fragile and heavy, other times difficult, bright and gloomy. The record is a deep look into identity and the human’s different aspects: his weakness and madness, his power and sadness, his fall, evil, good, darkness and light. The music in this album is an attempt to build bridges made of strong Berber and Tunisian melodies as well as bridges made off percussions from North Africa. The guembri and other Tunisian Bendirs are mixed with electronica and are distorted and transformed to produce an enveloping ecstasy in a musical genre never heard before.
