After 35 years of touring all over the world, I have decided to retire completely from live concerts as Praga Khan. On the MAGA tour, Oliver Adams and I will be performing some of our classics, as well as songs from the legendary Mortal Kombat album, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. This promises to be an unforgettable evening in honor of our legacy and the iconic Mortal Kombat soundtrack.” – PRAGA KHAN

From his first single, “I Sit On Acid”, released in 1988, to the present, Belgium’s Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release Lust to the electro-thrash of 2012’s Deep Chills, Lords of Acid has re-defined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for thirty years. Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases.

MEET GIGI RICCI:

Gigi Ricci was born in Belgium to an Italian mother and a Belgian father.

Even though her early childhood was shaped by the marital problems of her parents, Gigi had always been an energetic and cheerful child. Always excited, and adventurous. Gigi loved to be surrounded by creative people as that formed a big source of inspiration, which is understandable since her father grew up in a music-loving gypsy family. “I can’t imagine my daddy other than singing whilst simultaneously playing the piano. My mama… she loved to dance. Dancing was in her blood. I inherited my interest in music and dance from my parents,” says Gigi.

When her parents decided to divorce, Gigi chose to move with her mother to a trailer park. As a teenager, Gigi became fascinated by the gypsy life, the unique atmosphere, its culture, the glitter and glamour, their freedom, and their joie de vivre. The gypsy and t the artist, and the partying hedonist. Gigi describes her teenage years in the trailer park as follows: “Life in the park was a great adventure. There was always something going on; karaoke, barbecues, bingo nights, live performances, disco parties, campfire evenings, and lots of friends. There was an intense feeling of unity, cosines, and freedom, the youthful, rash type of freedom”.

When a fortune-teller told Gigi that she would become famous abroad, Gigi was convinced that a music career was meant for her. She decided to go out into the wide world and ended up in Amsterdam, the dissolute metropolis that guarantees freedom, acceptance, and diversity.

Back in Belgium, Gigi meets the well-known fashion photographer “Dave Grønnesby” who asks her to consider a career as a fashion model. Not much later, Gigi makes her debut on the catwalk and grows into one of the fashion world’s rising stars. Gigi said: “I quickly felt that this was not for me. I was a wild child, a free spirit. The modeling world, on the other hand, is very superficial, which can be felt as a model. As a model, you are like a mannequin without an opinion. You can feel that as a person you don’t really matter”.

Not much later, her first great love, music, started to take over again. Gigi bought herself a home studio and started recording demos that she distributed on social media. She was pleasantly surprised that she received great feedback. When a mutual acquaintance introduced her to “Praga Khan” from “Lords of Acid” the ball started rolling. Praga was looking for a new singer for the new Lords of Acid album and asked Gigi if she would be interested.

“I immediately said yes! In the meantime, we have already recorded several new LOA demos, and we have been playing live gigs all over Belgium. A spicy detail is that my dad had a relationship with a former singer of the band. So, their music was not unknown to me”, says a mischievously smiling Gigi.

Lastly, we can remark that Gigi’s favorite music genre is rock, metal, and punk, her favorite color is dark red, and her hobbies are fitness and tattoos. As for her favorite food, she sticks to lobster and oysters. She celebrates her birthday on April 22nd, hence her zodiac sign is Taurus.
