Welcome to Pangani's promoter page
In kiswahili, the word “Pangani” describes a place of spirits, where energy can be felt and vibrations make you move.
As a sonic storyteller, Pangani fuses otherworldly soundscapes and deep basslines into adventurous psychedelic dub. Detailed synth work and crisp complex beat constructions are braided with flashes of vocals and acoustic instruments, to create bubbling and pressurized imaginary sound worlds.
In Pangani’s live shows, sound-designed puzzle-pieces meet the "foleyboard", a self-built percussive synthesizer. It contains a sound reactive wooden surface, on which all kind of objects, like seeds, sand or brushes are used to generate sounds, which are than manipulated to shape sonic landscapes. This setup enables him to improvise and let his audience experience electronic live music in a one-man-band setup.
Pangani is an austrian psychedelic music project formed by Sebastian Frisch in 2014.
His musical journey guided him through reggae bands, street-music in kenyan hoods, sound-art installations and various electronic music explorations all around the world. During his master studies, he started to develop his pangani performance setup. Instruments like the foleyboard enable the artist to freely play in the moment and let his audience experience the magic of sound creation.
Pangani self-released his debut Album ‘In The Moment’ through a crowdfunding campaign in 2016.

How do I play
"...Pangani takes psydub to the outer limits. His debut album, In The Moment, is filled with beautiful, mind-bending, dexterous programming. Crafty synth work, crisp complex beat construction and warm fat basslines are spiced with flashes of electric guitar, saxophone, EWI, vocals, flute and English horn. It’s a stream of passion that pays tribute to its luminary, spiritual ancestor, without imitating or recycling. ..."
"Pangani took over the SOLAS Stage with little more than a sound deck and his own ingenuity and turned it into a huge party. The Austrian DJ created immersive soundscapes that turned the forest into faraway and unreachable places. ..." www.latitudefestival.com/live-blog/2016/thursday
"Was man sich jetzt unter „Dubby Storytelling“ vorstellen kann? Diverse Label-Pressetexter würden es wohl als „sphärische, geerdete Musik in multiplen Facetten, die man so noch nicht gehört hat“ beschreiben. Ich formuliere es hier mal salopp: Musik, die man an einem beschissenen, regnerischen Sonntag, wo die Milch für den Kaffee aus ist und auch noch der Strom ausfällt, hören möchte.
