Rainbow Arabia is an electronic duo based in Los Angeles, California consisting of Future Pigeon keyboardist Danny Preston and wife Tiffany Preston.
They perform a brand of dance music that contains elements of Arabic, North African and Asian fused with American avant-garde dance pop. They have released two EPs on Manimal Vinyl since forming in early 2008 The Basta (2008) and Kabukimono (2009). They have toured the US and Europe with Hecuba (band), Gang Gang Dance and played shows in Europe with Wavves and Mogwai (band). They cite the label Sublime Frequencies and Syrian singer Omar Souleyman as influences. Their latest EP Kabukimono has found critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.
