DJ Safri is co-founder and resident DJ of the acclaimed monthly Mystic Grooves events.
Together with guest DJs, musicians & dancers Safri sets fire to the dancefloor with a hot & spicy mix of Indian Bhangra, Bollywood Breaks, Lebanese House, Egyptian Bellydance Hip-Hop, Moroccan Drum 'n Bass, Turkish Sufi-trance, Gypsy Grooves and much more. Besides music, there is stunning decoration, visuals, (belly)- dancers & food.
Mystic Grooves started in September 2003 with a monthly Thursday night at Rasa, Utrecht. Soon after, the nights got sold out regularly. As a result, the attention for Mystic Grooves from outside Utrecht started to grow. Besides festival appearances, a second regular night started at De Melkweg, Amsterdam. In 2006, the regular parties moved to the bigger Tivoli-De Helling club in Utrecht.
Balkan & Gypsy Grooves
In 2004, long before 'Balkan Beats' became a big hype, Safri started playing the hottest Gypsy, Balkan & Klezmer music in clubs. The music he was already enjoying at home since childhood. Safri played alongside well known live acts like Fanfare Ciocarlia, Mahala Raï Banda, Besh o droM, Amsterdam Klezmer Band, Shantel & Bucovina Club Orkerstar, Kal, Dunkelbunt, Apparatschik and Gitans de Perpignan.
