MARK ERNESTUS’ NDAGGA RHYTHM FORCE

Mark Ernestus’ Ndagga Rhythm Force is a collaboration between a group of Senegalese musicians and Berlin dub-techno legend Mark Ernestus (Basic Channel / Rhythm & Sound), birthed from a series of sizzling sessions in the city of Dakar. Despite the musical, geographical, political and social divisions that exist between them, they make a strikingly autonomous sound; fusing elements of Senegalese Mbalax percussion, Jamaican dub and Berlin minimalism to shake out grooves that are truly out of this world.

In a live setting the group feature singer/MC Mbene Diatta Seck, talking drum master Modou Mbaye, dancer Fatou Wore Mboupsabar, drummer Bada Seck and guitar player Assane “Ndoye” Cisse, as well some young hotshots from the Dakar scene. We’re so delighted to welcome this group to the UK for the first time as part of Counterflows.

From assisting John Peel’s legendary radio show back in the day to running his own club nights and label (Heated Heads), Mark Maxwell (Mother) has over time drilled himself into the heart of the Glasgow music scene. Mark encyclopaedic knowledge transcends techno, jungle, music concrete, dubstep and so much more, but for Counterflows this year he’ll be treating us to a special dub set, warming up for Mark Ernestus’ Ndagga Rhythm Force.

PS – if you fancy a bit of recording shopping at the festival, make sure to pop by Glasgow institution Rubadub – whose stacks are curated by Mark himself.
