The electronic music of French duo Leïla Jiqqir and Romain Henry — aka Taxi Kebab — reveals influences of krautrock, psyche and techno, all the while haunted by the specter of Leïla’s North African roots. Reclaiming her Moroccan father’s Darija language, it’s through a liberating poetic register that her voice interacts with the acid arpeggios and rippling layers of Romain Henry’s machinery experiments. On their debut EP ‘Visions al 2ard’ (‘Visions of The Land’), synthesizers, drum machines, modulated guitars and amplified buzuq collide as Taxi Kebab ventures on a night ride through the Moroccan countryside, unveiling its self-described ‘psyché désoriental’ sound. Visions al 2ard was released in June 2022 via the Real World X imprint of Peter Gabriel’s Real World Records and available on all digital platforms. The band’s first single ‘Ardina’ (Our Lands), is the ideal stepping stone to get acquainted with the relentless electronic pulse and passionate vocals of Taxi Kebab.
