HOBA HOBA SPIRITScène Moulay Hassan
Between rock, hip hop, funk and Moroccan folklore, Hoba Hoba Spirit incarnates the avant-garde, contemporary, and activist scene in Morocco with songs that become hits every time. The singles “Bienvenue à Casa” (Welcome to Casa) and “Blad Skyzo” (Crazy Town) are permanently etched into the memory of all Moroccans. The band has 8 albums in their discography, including the recent Kamayanbaghi (January 2018), and have played over 500 concerts in Morocco and abroad. When Hoba toured America the press hailed them as a “fun, intense, funky Moroccan band” (New York Music Daily), or a “powerhouse mix” (Broadway World). The band’s latest opus, Kamayanbaghi, with cover illustration by artist Rebel Spirit, features thirteen new tracks. Hoba Hoba Spirit has established itself as a generous and emblematic group, both onstage and in production. Two videos directed by filmmaker Hicham Lasri were released along with their latest album, and both are available on digital platforms.
