Shooglenifty was formed in Edinburgh at the height of the early 90s electronic dance music scene. The vibe of that me and the extraordinary melting pot of musical styles that come from being based in a small city, are key influences on their sound.
Their 2015 release The Untied Knot received much critical acclaim, including a 5* review in Songlines.
The Shoogles are currently working on their 8th studio album, The High Road to Jodhpur, a collaboration with Dhun Dhora, a group of master musicians from Rajasthan. The two bands will dedicate the album to the Shoogles’ late fiddler Angus R Grant. The new work will be launched in Europe in summer 2017 and at Jodhpur RIFF.
Shooglenifty and Dhun Dhora are available for festival bookings in 2017.
