A true UFO in the musical world industry, Hilight Tribe has taken the bull by its horns and changed around all the dogmas by playing a techno music without the help of any machines. By a very complete musical process and a rich mix of influences, (afro, indien, reggae, rock or electro) this five musicians and their acolyte ingé-son have been able to revitalize the crazy bet to produce a true 100% instrumental trance label, opening the door to a music of a new gender.
Here, the beat bass/ percussion boom is combined with the incredible instrument gender of all kind (guitar, didgeridoo, voice, percussion for the 4 parts of the planet) on which are added effects to which only the tribe has the secret. The atmosphere that is felt at the concerts is unique, mixing dancers and slamers in the same space. This originality has already allowed them to tour on the most prestigious festivals in France and in the world. From Goa to Ibiza, America or Japan, the group notoriety has not stopped to evolve, reuniating in each occassion, the concert followers with those of the rave-parties. In other terms we are here really talking about the musical alternative, of both a traditionnal gender as well as an avant-garde, a bridge thrown between time and horizons. Hilight Tribe has surpass their tenth anniversary, and today counts more than 6 albums, 3 vidéoclips, 2 singles and more than 600 concerts. Without a doubt the six members take the advantage of the spearhead position of the instrumental electro wave.
