RED FULKA plays an electrifying fusion of divine melodies, deep dance floor grooves, tribal power, electronic sparks, East meets West and Balearic beauty. For this project, Praful reamed up with Moroccan-Dutch producer/beat master/DJ Kareem Raihani. 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

About Kareem Raihani: Kareem 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)
