At the crossroads of influences coming from all sides, Taxi Kebab is the collision between synthesizers, drum machines, modulated guitars and amplified buzuq.
In a re-appropriation of her father's language, it’s through a liberating poetic register that Lea Leïla Jiqqir (buzuq, guitar and voice) interferes with the acid arpeggios and rippling layers led by Romain Henry's experiments with machines.
Mainly electronic, the music of the French-Moroccan duo is sometimes close to krautrock, psyche, techno influences haunted by the specter of North African roots. Revealing some disordered identities fragments, their music is a night ride, through roads and landscapes into a rough, psyche sound, disoriented and “disoriental”.
