producers today. Hamza’s diverse international sound is influenced by his strong musical background as well as growing up in India and traveling the world, living in Paris, Boston and New York. Exposure to renowned house DJs such as Terry Francis, Dave Mothersole, DJ Heather, and Danny Teneglia inspired Hamza to create his own electronic dance productions. Soon he found a unique style of house music combining deep, tribal, and funky sounds with strong world music influences.
Hamza and Manu perform house music with Latin percussion. They have had successful tours in Europe and India since 2009
and continue to rock audiences worldwide. Manu Idhra is a well-known percussionist from Portugal and has played with famous DJs such as Pig & Dan, Steve Lawler, DJ Chus and Bob Sinclair.
