Black Cat Bone

Do you believe in Rock 'n' Roll?

Do you believe in the hoodoo of the Black Cat Bone?

Since the day that lucky charm was tossed aside by the ghost of Maggie McGill, swallowed by a whisky bottle drowning in salt water and then coughed up on the Leith shoreline, it has been rooted in those muddy waters like a timeless groove, coiled, omnipotent, waiting ...

Discovered down by the water, reflecting on the endless bridge, the hoodoo blues legacy was mutated and perpetuated. Louisiana hot sauce with salivating mouth harp blues, deep drilling bass and drums that hit the vein of your soul and hot, hot guitars weaving incongruous licks like poison ivy round the tree of convention. They will make you thirsty like lizard skin and shake like a rattlesnake's tail.

If you need to satisfy your hunger for good taste and you want the best, then drink deep from this well, my friends. A path will light up before your eyes and will have Black Cat Bone coming for you.

Get down with the dirty sleazy grooves of Edinburgh based Black Cat Bone.

For 5 years BCB have been pedalling their own brand of deafening fuzzy hoodoo and are here to convert all you non-believers.

Gnawa Trance Fusion

Gnawa music is a traditional North African folk music that combines ritual poetry with traditional music and dancing, it combines Berber, Arabic and Islamic rhythms from ancient African Islamic culture.

Its characteristic instruments are the three stringed guembri and the iron castanets known as qraqeb. This music, with its use of repeated rhythms and chant-like vocals can inspire feelings of euphoria, originally forming part of a ritual to induce a spiritual trance.

Omar is continuing this exploration with an experimental twist, bringing Gnawa traditions to new audiences as well as collaborating to create fusions that combine the Guembri with a range of other instruments and styles including bagpipes, guitar, fiddle and banjo.
