Adi Gelbart, Makimakkuk and Kuunatic at Haus der Kulturen der Welt / Friday 11.11.2022

On the 11th day of the 11th month of the year 2022 Adi Gelbart will perform musical rituals to summon higher deity and/or extra-terrestrials, whoever hears the call first.

Gelbart’s live shows are a psychedelic exploration of synthesized modulations and space-age-pop inspired melodies, played with hands-on mastery on analog gear and mysterious homemade devices. His shows are as much a celebration of nonsensical musical ideas, as they are a prayer of submission to alien gods of superior intelligence.

Gelbart has multiple releases behind him (including splits with Dan Deacon and Frederik Schikowski, and a complete remake of the Beatles first album!) on different labels such as Gagarin Records, LoAF, and his own Defekt Records. Gelbart relocated in 2006 from Tel-Aviv to Berlin, each of his live concerts converting new diehard fans who just can”t wait to see what will happen next. Gelbart is touring Europe in December to celebrate the release of his upcoming 12” record “Preemptive musical offering to satisfy our future masters” on Gagarin Records.

KUUNATIC is a thrilling Tokyo based tribal-psych trio bolstered by diverse global sonics and powerful female vocals. Drawing on the members’ different musical and cultural perspectives, their music explores ritual drumming, pulsing bass lines, atmospheric keyboard sounds and Japanese traditional instruments. Formed by 3 female members who have completely different musical and cultural background, KUUNATIC explores pulsing, unconventional and atmospheric sound with diverse sonics and ritual vocals.

The musical influences of Makimakkuk, a rapper, DJ, music producer and artist from Ramallah, are as diverse as her activities. As an emcee, she is known for a tone that is both abstract and serious and at times sarcastic as she flows through personal, social and political issues. Since becoming internationally known through a collaboration with Sun Glitters, she has steadily expanded her musical scope: She brings hip-hop as well as varieties of bass and club music, pop and R’n’B as well as folkloric forms and their contemporary adaptations into productive dialogue.
