More Info

Neue Aufnahmen der Sufi-Trance-Musiker aus Nord-Marokko, von dem jhrlich stattfindenden "Boujeloud"-Ritual (Aufnahmen von 1994-1998).
Herrlich treibend und pur akustisch, aber man muss schon Flten mgen, die nach Flten klingen (das sind kleine Bambusflten namens " Iiras"), und die typisch qukenden Trten ("Rhaitas")... SUFI-FOLK at its best !!

"In the mythology of the village of Joujouka, Boujeloud is a half-man/half-goat creature who bears a great resemblance to the ancient god Pan. Each year for a week following the Islamic festival of Aid El Kebir (the Big Feast) the musiciansenact the pagan-like ritual of Boujeloud. A man sewn into black goat-skins dances wildly while the musicians play a suite of music to both calm the beast and to scare him away. Joujouka music is played on either small bamboo flutes called liras or on the loud oboe-like rhaita and is backed by their primal drumming. The Masters Musicians utilise circular breathing to play long notes over which the lead pipers play melodies and solos. This CD demonstrates the trance inducing sounds of Joujouka."
