CD Reviews

African music for the 21st century
Guy Felten | 11/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Gnaoua were Moroccon musician slaves. Their music is a religion, each phase of a Gnaoui get-together belongs to a color, there's so much to say about this. Let me put it this way: Jimi Hendrix went to Essaouira where he met Gnaoui musicians and when he went back to England, Jimi had found his deepest self. From there to the Spangled Banner was but one step. BTW, if you are a music ethnologist, somebody in Essaouira taped a few afternoons of Jimi playing acoustic guitar trying to remember what he had heard the evening before. If you find these tapes... In the meantime, this is IT. The Gnaoui blended the best of Africa, Orchestre National de Barbès added the best of contemporary instrumentation, rythm and sound and the result is - the one CD you don't lend to anybody."
