The Eco Park Porthtowan, launches its gig season with a cultural clash like no other - Middle Eastern electro supergroup 47Soul will be playing live in the Eco Park Barn on Saturday, February 3.

47Soul, the Arab electronic hip-hop supergroup, with members from Palestine and Jordan, release their full-length debut Balfron Promise on February 2 and this Cornwall date is part of their UK tour to launch the album. 47SOUL have become renowned for inventing their own genre Shamstep (also the name of their debut EP), which fuses hip-hop and pop lyrics in English and Arabic.

The electronic creation, featuring elements of Arab roots music have been kicked up a gear on Balfron Promise, with cinematic soundscapes and menacing rock undertones creating an extra atmospheric edge.

The quartet have gained a cult following from gigs around the world, including at the likes of Glastonbury and WOMAD in the UK. Their distinctive hooks and powerful political lyrics resonate with their fans with the YouTube music video for their debut single Intro to Shamstep currently sitting on 5.4 million views.

The band also have a formidable reputation as a live act. This is demonstrated by their most recent sold-out live teaser performance of their new album at London’s Village Underground.

Beyond their musical influence, 47SOUL are renowned as a voice on social issues – the band’s very name is an allusion to the occupation of Palestine. Their lyrics often tell stories of oppression and the efforts of normal people to combat it, not only in the Middle East but around the world.

Doors open from 7.30pm and La Cantina Café will be open, serving a vegan/vegetarian supper on the night. For full details check
