They formed in Berlin in 1980, but moved to India in 1981 to record their first album "Germanistan", inspired by percussionist Trilok Gurtu and produced in collaboration with the Karnataka College Of Percussion and American saxophonist Charlie Mariano. They then moved on to Morocco to record "Sahara Elektrik" in 1982 at the Sultan's Palace in Tangier with the help of local band Lem Chaheb. The track "Fata Morgana" became a dance hit in Europe and Canada, and the group toured widely. In the mid-1980s the group moved to Spain, producing "Life At The Pyramids", and also began to receive some recognition in the USA and UK. In 1989 they moved back to Morocco, recording "Out Of This World" with the Royal National Orchestra of Morocco, and other leading North African musicians.

Three years later, they recorded "The Jungle Book", weaving recordings of Indian life into dance tracks. More recently they have performed in concerts worldwide, and have worked on a musical opera based around the River Danube. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissidenten] Read more on Last.fm.
