Phoenician Drive is a six-piece band from Brussels formed by Chilean percussionist Diego Moscoso, who has brought together musicians from very different backgrounds with the intention of making drums and distorted guitars join with oud, rek and other Eastern percussion instruments. In the footsteps of East-West musical blendings from the 70s like Erkin Koray or Orient Express, and under the influence of the German kraut-rock scene (Neu!, Can, Faust) and the 60s soundtrack composers, Phoenician Drive is looking for the hypnotic trance based on distorted oriental grooves.
The band released the critically acclaimed (check the quotes) and self-titled Phoenician Drive album via Exag Records last fall followed by a series of clubshows. To kick off 2019 they play two influential festivals: Eurosonic (NL Groningen) and We Are Open @Trix (BE – Antwerp).
Do yourself a favour and go catch one of their shows.
