Sukhawat Ali Khan – Baraka Moon’s charismatic and passionate vocalist draws from his luminary family’s 600 year old Pakistani singing tradition with a voice that comes straight from the heart and soars to the heavens. He can also be heard squeezing and cajoling sweet ragas and shredding blues riffs from his harmonium.

Stephen Kent – A one-man-band Didgeridoo/Percussion virtuoso, he is a globally acclaimed pioneer in bringing the ancient Aboriginal instrument to the contemporary world. With a primal shout, he conjures a deep and earthy pulse that is the vibratory core of Baraka Moon’s compelling groove engine.

Peter Warren – Our Drummer/Percussionist is responsible for the irresistible and dynamic power of Baraka Moon’s full on dance beats, with grooves honed over many years performing with African musicians and dancers in the U.S. and his native Canada.

Anastasi Mavrides – Bringing his seasoned and unique guitar work to the music, Anastasi blends shimmering chordal voicings, soaring anthemic melodies and downright super-funky rhythms. He also provides lush supporting vocals to Sukhawat’s singing.

Airtist is one of the best-known European bands playing organic beats. They create essential elementary dance music with the most ancient instruments. The three musicians, acknowledged worldwide build an uplifting and energetic atmosphere that is deeply rooted. This Jew's harp, didgeridoo and human beat-box trio brings real organic trance to the audience.
Airtist is a unique music project creating the atmosphere of electronic dance music, but using only ancient instruments and the human voice. The didgeridoo, the Jew's harp and the human beat-box together create an unmatchable sound-world that is typical only to Airtist. They don't use any electronically produced sound. Only the natural vibration of their AIR-fueled instruments gets people dancing. Despite the cultural heritage relating to the origin of their instruments the music of Airtist speaks a universal language that gets along without electronically produced elements. This music could have been played the very same way thousands of years ago.
