Rocky B’s new project The Tropikal Camel are a series of sonic adventures in Tribal Arabic music, future bass, shamanic sound scapes and industrial beats .

The title of Tropikal Camel ‘s debut album, Rocky’s first release outside of Israel, “In Die Hafla” , means in the party (Hafla), a phrase in Arabic and German.

This name is a reflection of Rocky’s journey to his roots in Iraq, Kurdistan, Morocco and Austria.

As a grandson of immigrants that were forced to forget their motherland’s culture, and repress their cultural heritage.

Rocky’s music in this album reflects a process of liberation from those oppressive chains, toward a consciousness free from shame and denial. At the same time it tells a personal story of Rock’s experiences in Berlin as an Eastern immigrant in the West. This album is also a tribute to many releases in Israeli/Jewish/Arabic music culture that were and still are popularly known as hafla music, or “party music”. This kind of recordings contains celebratory songs sang in weddings and holidays, including many tracks which are cover versions of music from all over the Middle East. As an extension of this tradition, Rocky sample from wildly diverse sources such as old belly dance records from Lebanon, Zorna music from Egypt, Anatolian rock from Turkey, etc.

The album is released by the Spanish label Folcore from Barcelona that focuses in global bass from Europe and south America.
