Much musical migration has occurred between North Africa and Western Europe in recent years and you can’t deny we’re all the richer for this glorious cultural influx. One of the most electrifying exports is Islam Chipsy and his blazing trio EEK. Chipsy’s fabulously showboating keyboard flourishes backed by his raging double drummers bring the street sounds of his native Cairo all the way to Prestatyn.
Anyone who’s previously witnessed Chipsy and co will confirm that standing still within earshot of their music is a physical impossibility – it’s a safe bet you’ll be surfing the crowd and dancing like a loved-up camel with the first 5 minutes of them taking the stage. Utter joy.
