Alcalica is a self-produced band from the Island of Lesbos (Gr) and Berlin.Dream’n’Bass/ Underground Aegean Music
Alcalica’s concerts combine improbable yet agreeable sounds and instruments. Trip on a mutating electronic carpet and bauhausian dadaist improvisation theatre, intoxicating non-dogmatic rituals and sincere dance music. Each concert is marked by the moment and the place. This point of encounter bea
rs eternal resonances and touches to the core of the human matter.
Our sound is influenced by rembetiko and broken beats.
On stage we play the Persian santoor, Greek baglamas, African kalimba, harware electronics and vocals in five languages, female, poetic and profound.
In twelve years we have released six vinyl albums and given hundreds of concerts across Europe. We have collaborated with renowned artists such as Baba Zula and Brenna MacCrimmon on stage as well as in the studio. Our recent tours in the Aegean have woven a dream-catcher of aficionados of most varied horizons.
