The Rough Guide To The Music Of Morocco


We start with the brilliant Nass Marrakech and their global take on gnawa (look out for them on UK tour in the spring - not to be missed) who are followed by one of Morocco's biggest stars, Jil Jilala. The Rough Guide takes us from the traditional gnawa and melhoun to some more contemporary influences all of which have helped to shape the varied culture of this exciting land. Further artists featured include, Nass El Ghiwane, Najm El Farah Essafi, Bnet Marrakech and Mustapha Bourgogne, 71minutes of music that will take you from mellow to full on hedonism, from chilled to party. Brilliant. Graham Radley
