Omni Selassi

Two words, countless drums, voice: Omni Selassi. A restless and psychedelic machine packed with effects, driven by two whipping drummers, encased by psychotropic noise mist and ensnared by haunted singing. A groovy one-way trip down the rabbit hole of your dance lust. Kraut stings your eardrums lovingly; drone fills the senses with a gentle touch of punk. Who would possibly want to get out of there? The abstruse meets the psychedelic and we fidget, jostle and dream. The trio’s rhythmic, organic sound world thumps and rumbles is totally alive and will not let you off the hook easily.
