moussem in Morocco -a taste of the old world

Im back in Sweden after a week spent in Morocco. It’s obviously TOO short but I still managed to do what I came for. First up was the moussem (which is kind of a festival) around Marrakech. I entered some lilas (gnawa rituals) and also recorded the great master Abdellatif ”Sidi Amara”. After I had a few days relaxing with my family in Rabat. The sun was out, around 20 degrees… Now I’m wrapped in a snowstorm in northern Sweden, in Umeå, for gig with my old band Giddabros/Giddabush. I guess you could call this travelling between extremes…

a short clip from my recording of m’allem Abdellatif. It will be part of short documentary I’m doing about different maestros.
