The Rough Guide To The Music Of Morocco

Various
Audio CD: FDO 2004-02-09
Label: World Music Network
"Morocco is a musical wonderland, stuffed with a bewildering surfeit of sounds; raw, sophisticated, ancient, modern, acoustic, electronic, mellow, fierce, deeply spiritual and extravagantly hedonistic. Culturally fed by rivers flowing in from all directions, its musical gene pool is rich and diverse, although the unique legacy of Morocco’s own native Berber culture remains more rooted than any imported influences. This album features two of Morocco’s musical giants, Jil Jilala and Nass El Ghiwane, the best-loved Moroccan female group, Bnet Marrakech and the greatest al aita star of modern times, Fatna Bent El Houcine. Delving into some of Morocco’s musical traditions, such as melhoun and gnawa, this CD to The Music Of Morocco also features some of the more contemporary and electronic sounds to have emerged out of this culturally rich country. Enjoy!......at 320.0 kb/sec!"

Hi Scorpio.
Nice article. I like Moroccan music very much.
Moroccan music is of many types; it includes Arab, Berber, classical, and Popular elements. Musicians perform in concerts, in cafes, at private homes, at circumcision ceremonies, marriages, funerals, and religious processions and in accompaniment to dancing and storytelling.
