BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

Join AdHoc Presents and Pioneer Works for a night of music from OM and Emel Mathlouthi.

There remains the singularity of purpose that is the core of all OM records, but no single reason can account for this comprehensive nature of their evolution. On their newest album the core primary sound of OM remains, yet everything reaches further and becomes more of itself. Whatever drone-doom camp that OM had previously been placed in has been decimated by the sheer imagination and expansive quality of this recording. For a band that has continually followed its own course, and stood alone in its sound and approach, ADVAITIC SONGS for certain, is the band’s most focused, progressive document.

Emel Mathlouthi rose to prominence after her 2007 recording “Kelmti Horra (My Word Is Free)” became a viral anthem during the Arab Spring, earning her the title “voice of the Tunisian revolution” and eventually an invitation to perform at the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. Her powerful, heartfelt music defies genres, melding together electronica, Tunisian textures and a cinematic universe.
