Shalabi Effect

Shalabi Effect began in 1996 as a duo composed of Anthony Seck and Sam Shalabi. The duo played around town for a couple of years and released a cassette recording. In 1998 Shalabi Effect added Alexandre St. Onge on double bass and Will Eizlini on tablas.

Shalabi Effect performances have become more and more full as members have been bringing more and more toys to the shows. Expect to see lots of live electronics, a few strange instruments from remote forests, a variety of percussion and drone makers. You might also see a screening of old NFB (National Film Board of Canada) Nature movies that are often as experimental as the music.

Anthony Seck (electric guitar, lapsteel, moog, keyboards), Sam Shalabi (oud, electronics, toys), Alexandre St. Onge (double & electric bass, electronics, voices), Will Eizlini (percussion, electronics, trumpet)
