XLR8R & SHAPE Wrap Up: Watch a Set of Acoustic Rave Tracks by Dorota
Experimental acoustic punk, presented by UH Fest.
The 35-minute video, which is presented by UH Fest, features the Hungarian experimental-Sufi-punk trio (made up of Dániel Makkai, Áron Porteleki, and Dávid Somló) performing a set of inspired acoustic rearrangements of their rave tracks. The band’s inspiration comes from North-African and Middle-and-Far-Eastern traditional music and they look to connect “the rural and the urban, the east and the west, into something that is relevant now,” the band says.
