  • Description

    Double CD digipack, inclusive of a 24 page booklet.
    "The world's only 4,000 year-old rock and roll band" – William S. Burroughs

    "Something that all who listen to music should encounter at least once in their lives." – Spectrum Culture

    Beautifully recorded in situ in the Rif mountains in the autumn of 2019, this 110-minute double CD presents these legendary musicians expansively and unhindered. Based in Jajouka, Morocco, The Master Musicians are a collective of Jbala Sufi trance makers, committed to creating a contemporary representation of their centuries-old musical tradition.

    The album is produced by long time band leader Bachir Attar, and with all but one of the tracks exceeding 10-minutes in length, it is clear that these recordings authoritatively grasp the textured essence of this timeless ensemble.

    Deeply hypnotic and earth-shakingly intense.
