Inspired by his Arab roots, Wará is the most recent alias of Fran Mora: the Sevilla-born, Barcelona-based dj, producer and founder of the Urban Legend label, known for his dark industrial techno project /beyond/.

Wará’s debut EP “Luna Verde”, released on his own label, inhales the rhythms and murmurs of el Raval, Barcelona’s iconic multicultural neighbourhood. For this project, Mora leads us into the hypnotic sounds of Hindu and Arabic classical music without leaving behind the magma of dense noise and manipulated samples he is recognised for; a sonic journey from texture to rhythm with Arab instruments that make the listener feel as if you they were arriving to a Bedouin village after crossing the desert.

At MIRA 2018, Wará will presenting his A/V show performed in collaboration with Trama Barceló and Jorge Cumbre (unseen), based on analogue photographs captured by Teresa Espadafor and chemically manipulated by Raul Hidalgo, two of Barcelona’s most promising up and coming photographers.
