    My music is conflict, it was created in conflict, born between suicide bombers exploding in the streets and kids dying in air strikes over Gaza. When I'm on stage I wear the Moroccan Kaftan and become the Tropikal Camel, a witch doctor, the master of ceremony.
    ארץ - أرض - ERETZ
    Eretz is the biblical hebraic word for homeland. But the Tropikal Camel takes it back to the primal meaning of earth, thus restoring its brotherhood with the arabic root Ardh. echoing his very own history, this raises a fundamental question: “what is home?” He fills his music with a deeper dimen- sion, both mystical and social, chaotic and meditative.
    The ERETZ lp is a trip into the arab music legacy, a hypnotic and repetitive ritual ceremony. The distorted percussions and chopped vocals of ancient spirits are fused with industrial beats, shamanic rhymes, and metallic noise scapes. In the footsteps of the Tropikal Camel, we travel through an apocalyptic desert, a metaphor of our own introspection into identity, culture and spirituality. This music is one of conflict and harmony, a quest for equilibrium.
    TROPIKAL CAMEL
    Born and raised in Jerusalem, Roi “Rocky B.” Asayag moved to Berlin in 2013, where he currently lives and works. His new project is the musical depiction of a seminal journey into his arab roots. Soul-searching through his intricate identity, he takes us from Kurdistan and Iraq to Morocco. This is how the Tropikal Camel is born: an arab Jew, chasing the lost connection to his arab culture.
