Join DJ and producer Aeli and create new music from traditional ingredients. You’ll hear how he blends influences as varied as rap and centuries-old Middle Eastern music. Then you’ll get hands-on with iPad and the Ableton Live app to make music of your own, layering instrumental textures and hip-hop beats with North African vocal chants. Bring your own devices or we’ll provide them.
