More Info

" A 4000 year old rock band" W. S. Burroughs. Recognised internationally, Jajouka goes back up to the late Rolling Stone Brian Jones, across his collaboration of 1968, but also to Paul Bowles, Brion Gysin, and William S.Burroughs which had already established their residences for some years together with these musicians of the mountains of Rif. "The Source" is the new record of The "true" Master Musicians of Jajouka and it goes back to the origins of their sacred music. Bachir Attar, last descendant of the Masters Musicians of Jajouka, is directly connected to the highest muslim tradition. Recognised internationally, Jajouka goes back up to the late Rolling Stone Brian Jones, across his collaboration of 1968 (having introduced on his disc Brian Jones presents: the pan pipes of Jajouka), but also to Paul Bowles, Brion Gysin, and William S.Burroughs which had already established their residences for some years together with these musicians of the mountains of Rif. Their name comes from a small village in the north of Morocco, located about 150 Kms in the south of Tangier, where is perpetuated for more than 2000 years a musical and magical tradition based on the Rituals of Section. Their art, in which they allocate virtues of healing, is ancestral, and takes its source in the traditions of the ancient Persian. Nagging and mysterious, the music of the Master Musicians of Jajouka is based on repetitive, inspiring and intriguing modulations." [label info]
