As of this year, Wednesdays are Bedouin’s at Pacha.
The duo (Rami Abousabe and Tamer Malki) kicked off their SAGA residency back in 2017 at HEART and planned a move to Pacha for 2020. Then that pandemic hit, but the two finally made the much-awaited grand debut at the iconic club this year. It’s been only a season at Pacha but they’ve already managed to christen Saga into a household event.
Celebrated for their Middle Eastern sonic vision and rhythms, Bedouin have released music on labels like Supernature, Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, and All Day I Dream.
They had their breakout moment rather quickly after playing a sunrise set on Robot Heart at Burning Man in 2013. Years later, they launched their own imprint Human By Default, debuting with their Whistleman EP.
Their Wednesday Saga residency opened on May 25 and will come to a close on October 5.
Over the past three months, Bedouin have been joined by a robust variety of artists like Black Coffee, Bonobo, Deep Dish, Damian Lazarus, Acid Pauli, Audiofly, Birds Of Mind, Bob Moses, andhim, and more.
This ambitious duo took on two summer residencies this year: in addition to Wednesdays at Pacha, Bedouin have been spending their Tuesdays this summer at Scorpios Mykonos.
Bedouin will be joined by WhoMadeWho for the September 21 edition of Wednesday Saga at Pacha.
After making a fantastic impression on the Wednesday Saga opening night, the Danish trio WhoMadeWho (Tomas Barfod, Tomas Hoffding, and Jeppe Kjellberg) are back at Storytellers’.
Founded in 2003, the punk-funk trio have released on labels like Gomma, Kompakt, Innervisions, and Life & Death. A major moment for the three was playing Burning Man on the Mayan Warrior car back in 2018. Their exclusive live set at the Abu Simbel temple, Egypt with Cercle in 2021 was live-streamed to thousands.
Their seventh studio album, UUUU, was released earlier in May this year via Embassy One with thirteen vocal compositions including the title track “UUUU” in collaboration with Keinemusik co-founder Rampa — “one of those songs that kept haunting us for over a year.”
Besides appearances at Wednesday Saga, WhoMadeWho played at OFFSónar Storytellers this summer.
