Basketball are creating a majestic and monumental communal spirit through their music. Traditional middle eastern strumming saddled upon gaping bass reverberates through the caves that permeate dances of new and old histories. They ride atop chrome camels across pixalated deserts to set up their dance tent. Their cargo: drum machines, a constellation of percussion, the turkish zurna, the persian santur, electric guitar, sub upon sub, and voice upon voice. Their live performances, like rituals, induce mass dancing through catharsis, roping bodies into possession with their fierce thumping beats, and sparkling with eastern melodies.
