"We Are One - album review"

“In de 33 jaar dat ik plaatjes draai is DIT (We Are one) de eerste cd met MEER dan 2 goede nummers. Echt een topalbum van begin tot eind. Diepe warme grooves, spannende accoordwisselingen en exploderende solos. Iedere track heeft net dat beetje extra waardoor het blijft boeien.” - DJ Shanto, Club Lite / Nataraj, NL

RED FULKA plays an electrifying fusion of divine melodies, deep dance floor grooves, tribal power, electronic sparks, East meets West and Balearic beauty. At the base of this group are world-renown multi-wind-instrumentalist Praful and Moroccan-Dutch producer/beat master/DJ Kareem Raïhani. Their magical connection compelled them since 2006 to work together and combine their unique talents. Since then they have lifted the energy of many festivals and conscious gatherings around the world, such as No Mind Festival (SE), Namaste (Ibiza, ES), Int. Peace Festival (FR), Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival (Aruba), Rainbow Spirit Festival (Munich, DE) and Int. Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) (NL).
After having released a few highly praised Vinyl Singles, they presented their debut album ‘We Are One’ in fall 2011.
Red Fulka’s planetary grooves warm the heart, touch the soul and move the waistline. Spread your wings and enjoy the flight!

“New Year’s Day saw us celebrating in wild dancing fashion to the ever amazing Praful and Kareem as ‘Red Fulka’ which took us to new heights of musical ecstasy.” Osho Leela, UK
Praful is a pioneer in melting Jazz, world music and dance styles, which is captured on his 6 solo albums. One Day Deep and Pyramid in your Backyard brought him international succes, top 10 US- Billboard Chart notations and a #1 US-radio hit. “As Praful weaves his spell with his sax, or invites soul searching with his flute, or ignites us to dance to abandon, he is in each and every note, inviting us to journey towards that which is of the highest calibre within us. And the path is pure joy.” (Mahasatvaa Sarita PhD, Tantra Teacher & Author)
Praful has toured, performed and recorded world-wide with many artists and DJs: Australian Earth-Chantress Peruquois, Carlos Nakai, Dave Koz, Deva Premal & Miten, Project 2000, Swati Natekar, [Jiga-Vôo] and DJs Lucien Foort, Maestro, Michel de Hey and Hardsoul.
Kareem Raïhani works also as DJ, spinning his eclectic, heart-warming mix of global beat fusion, but has also a history of working with musicians, producing dance tracks and remixing other artists. He is one of those rare DJs that think, feel work and play like a musician. He has released 2 mix albums and 2 studio albums: ‘Hi-Tech Roots’, a dynamic fusion of raw tumbling beats mixed down with inspirational musicians and vocalists around the world, was released in December 2010. With his songs, productions and remixes Kareem has earned his place among DJs, producers and musicians, creating a unique mix of adventurous dance music, from Afro to Disco, from Sufi to Techno.
“Through music & dance we embrace ancient, present & future, acoustics & electronics, tribal & urban, hitech and roots. Connecting with the Self, Mother Earth and the Universe, the dancer becomes the dance.” (Kareem)
