Remix & Production

Some of the music Safri plays is edited or remixed by him, to fit better in his DJ sets. Until now, these special versions remained for his own personal use. In the nearby future a selection of these remixes will be released commercially.
On stage, he sometimes performs together with dancers and live musicians playing instruments like sitar, tablas, darbuka & flutes (see extras for detail).
