When everything is a machine, the human will come back.

Riccardo Moretti is a professional musician who regularly performs both in clubs and festivals internationally. With his experimental combination of analog synths, didgeridoo, percussion, hang drum, kids' toys, beat-boxing and a loop station, Riccardo’s solo project TribalNeed is at the forefront of progressive musicianship.

Sharp melodies, melancholic sounds and ancient rhythms tell the story of this 'Electro Nomad’ and his journey between the European electronic scene and Afro-Australian tribal grooves. This mystic live-looping performance is a no-compromise, no-DJ, no-computer, spontaneous creation that manifests an original approach to electronic composition: a must-see live show.


TribalNeed has appeared at the Pflasterspektakel (Austria), Cape Town International Jazz Festival (South Africa), Gurtenfestival (Switzerland), Aufgetischt St.Gallen (Switzerland), Ferrara Buskers Festival (Italy), Streetlife Festival (Germany), Lowlands Festival (Netherlands), Club Paradiso (Amsterdam), Landshut Spectacle (Germany), Pennabilli (Italy), PhiBeach SuperClub (Sardinia).

His work is recorded on eight CDs, which you can purchase online.
