Here’s some rough footage from the Speed Caravan gig at Dingwalls.
Man they were AWESOME!!!!!
Mehdi, the Oud player is like the JIMI HENDRIX of the Electric Oud! Greatness is coming their way fo’ sure!
Footage, courtesy of the lovely and very hospitable host, Sebastian Merrick, who is also the promoter and organizer of KAZUM who co-hosted it with Real World.
The final clip, an excellent montage of Richard singing Dubai, Spex MC on Galvanize and Rocky Singh on Killing an Arab, has been sent to me courtesy of Laure from Enchanted Tunes. She hosts Global Music nights at Momo’s Kemia Bar which has to be credited as one of the first places where Speed Caravan made a name for themselves in the UK.
For my part on pretty awful and ancient CDJ’s:
Pre-gig – Some down-tempo Dubstep, followed by Arabic vybz, then Kuduro and then hardcore Dubstep.
Post gig – Arabic vybz followed by Sonido Del Principe jamz!
A big, big thanks to all who turned out to support it, it was like a celebratory re-union of sorts
