Battle of Algiers: Live Cine-Concert

About Battle of Algiers: Live Cine-Concert

For the first time in Ireland, drum ‘n’ bass renegades Asian Dub Foundation take on the controversial sixties film about urban guerrilla warfare The Battle of Algiers that inspired anti-imperialists across the world.

Here they bring their alternative edge and breakbeat music combined with North African influences fusing elements of the original score, to Gillo Pontecorvo’s haunting cinematic classic in an inspired synthesis of music and film.

While ADF’s rare ability to harness politics and dance music has gained them the accolade of ‘best live band in the Country’ Pontecorvo’s radical documentary-style epic has become a model of how, without prejudice, a filmmaker can illuminate the history of global anti-colonial resistance.

ADF’s searing jungliest beats, indo-dub bass lines and funked-out guitars are the perfect complement to the hard-hitting pulse of Pontecorvo’s undisputed masterpiece of celluloid insurrection.
