With his experimental combination of Synths, Didjeridoo, Percussion, Hang, Beatboxing and a Loop Station, Riccardo Moretti’s solo project ‘TribalNeed’ is at the forefront of progressive musicianship.

“Sharp melodies, melancholic sounds and ancient rhythms tell the story of the ‘Electro Nomad’ and his journey between the European Electro scene and Afro-Australian tribal grooves. This mix of organic instruments and circuit bent toys manifests an original approach to electronic music.”


Riccardo Moretti is an experienced professional musician who regularly performs both in clubs and festivals internationally. He moved from Italy to South Africa several years ago blending his own sound with new and stimulating musical influences that enriched his already multi-layered performance.

Former band member of Moodphase5ive, FiringSquad, Colourfieds, Godessa, in recent years he has appeared at the Pflasterspektakel (Linz, AT), CapeTown Jazz Festival, Gurtenfestival (Bern), Ferrara Buskers Festival (IT), StreetLife (Munich, DE), Lowlands (NL), Club Paradiso (Amsterdam), Vox Club (Modena), PhiBeach (Sardegna). His work is recorded on 6 CDs.
