  • Name: Savoir
  • Location: Perth, Australia
  • Genre: Tribaltronica

  • Website: Bandcamp

Savoir is the musical marriage between Andrew Sinclair's ethnic beatplay and James Ireland's techinical prowess. The first cut to emanate from the duo is 'Zinli Rhythm', an African inspired mesh of primal percussion and M.I.A.-style vocals – it demands a kinetic reaction from you, urging you to dance and get lost in the rhythms. There's unorthodox samples, a faint air of danger and the scorched clang of pitched metal congregating within this electronic beast.
