Unfettered and irreverent, Casablanca’s Hoba Hoba Spirit creates its drive from the clack of qarqaba (double castanets) and rhythmic swagger of North Africa. With its high-energy delivery, heavy guitars, and droll plays on words, Hoba Hoba Spirit is Morroc’n Roll – one hook-laden, thought-provoking, “crowd-wowing” party. Touring America at the invitation of the U.S. State Department as part of the cultural diplomacy program Center Stage, the band kicks off its tour at Bumbershoot. (Part of the Global music showcase.)
