A deeply psychedelic, groove-heavy meeting between London-based band Soundspecies and Moroccan Gnawa master musician Simo Lagnawi. Expect inexhaustible energy, moments of soulful calm and pinnacles of ecstatic mayhem.

“I’m loving it! We should get them to the studio…” Gilles Peterson



Animanz represent a safari through the dense urban jungle into a myotropic world of groove, energy & exhilaration. The tropical flame, Juanita Euka holds the stage as mistress of ceremonies while the band forges through Afro Latin swamps and ancient Funk ruins.
