 “Hailing from Central Sudan and now based in London after fleeing the fundamentalist takeover in that region, the Scorpios are a septet that melds Arabic rhythms and guitar chops (and a kind of swooning cyclical ecstasy) with a raw Eastern funk feel, properly dismantling cultural barriers in pursuit of a unifying rhythmic bliss. Heavy bass, synths, horns and percussions drive through traditional Sudanese forms to create a sound that owes as much to Detroit as it do to Khartoum” – Tusk

“The Scorpios translate Sudanese music from past decades into the now while maintaining a raw, unplugged sound.” – Thomas Gesthuizen 

“Truly beautiful and hypnotic Sudanese sounds for the mind, body, and soul. Clap your hands, tap your feet and then rewind.” – Rickard Masip (Tropical Treats) – Afro 7
