  • Moroccan Gnawa Music - The Beauty Of Morocco

    46:12

    Gnawa music mixes classical Islamic Sufism with pre-Islamic African traditions, whether local or sub-Saharan. The term Gnawa musicians generally refers to people who also practice healing rituals, with apparent ties to pre-Islamic African animism rites. In Moroccan popular culture, Gnawas, through their ceremonies, are considered to be experts in the magical treatment of scorpion stings and psychic disorders. They heal diseases by the use of colors, condensed cultural imagery, perfumes and fright.

    Gnawas play deeply hypnotic trance music, marked by low-toned, rhythmic sintir melodies, call-and-response singing, hand clapping and cymbals called krakeb (plural of karkaba). Gnawa ceremonies use music and dance to evoke ancestral saints who can drive out evil, cure psychological ills, or remedy scorpion stings.

    Gnawa music has won an international profile and appeal. Many Western musicians including Bill Laswell, Brian Jones, Randy Weston, Adam Rudolph, Tucker Martine, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, have drawn on and collaborated with Gnawa musicians such as Mahmoud Guinia. Some traditionalists regard modern collaborations as a mixed blessing, leaving or modifying sacred traditions for more explicitly commercial goals. International recording artists such as Hassan Hakmoun have introduced Gnawa music and dance to Western audiences through their recordings and concert performances.

  • Musique du Maroc Retro Mix - Music of North Africa: Welcome to Morocco

    1:8:35

    The music of Morocco consists of many musical genres, including the prevalence of western genres. Berber music refers to the musical traditions of the Berbers, an ethnic group native to North Africa west of the Nile Valley and parts of West Africa. Berber music varies widely across North-West Africa and some of the best known variations can be found in Moroccan music; Kabyle, Chawi and Gasba music from Algeria; and Tuareg from Burkina Faso, Niger and Mali.

    Ancient Berber music is stylistically diverse, with styles including pentatonic music, such instruments as the oboe and the bagpipes, and African rhythms along with singing.[2] These ancient musical traditions have been kept alive by small bands of musicians traveling from village to village, entertaining at weddings and other social events with their songs, tales and poetry.

    Most Berber music is of the village- and urban-folk musical variety. Berber music and culture is influenced by the Berber people's long-standing struggle to achieve basic language rights and identity recognition in modern North African societies, aside from aesthetics and style.

International recording artists such as Hassan Hakmoun have introduced Gnawa music and dance to Western audiences through their recordings and concert performances.

    The centre for Gnawa music is Essaouira in the south of Morocco where the Gnaoua World Music Festival is held annually. The Gnawa of Marrakesh hold their annual festival at the sanctuary of Moulay Brahim in the Atlas Mountains. The Gnawa of Khamlia hold their annual festival in August at the village Khamlia in Erg Chebbi.

    Chaabi (الشعبي in Arabic), also known as Chaâbi, Sha-bii, or Sha'bii, refers to different music genres in North Africa such as Algerian chaabi, Moroccan chaabi and Egyptian chaabi.
    Chaabi music is frequently found in weddings and this style is often associated with the festivals. The use of popular language and the creation of new rhythms have made this style an essential complement to the dance.

    Sufi brotherhoods (tarikas) are common in Morocco, and music is an integral part of their spiritual tradition. This music is an attempt at reaching a trance state which inspires mystical ecstasy.

    Rai is more closely associated with Algeria in the international music scene, but Morocco has produced its own stars like Cheb Mimoun and Hanino.

    10:46

    Performance - 5 July 2014
    Aziz Sahmaoui grew up in Marrakesh. In this city he absorbed both traditional Berber music as well as the omnipresent music of the Gnawa brotherhoods. The Gnawa music is a fusion of classical Sufi tradition and animistic influences from West Africa. The music is very trance inducing and is said to work therapeutically. There is a close relationship with the music brought to Morocco by the West-African slaves. In the late eighties Sahmaoui emigrated to Paris where he mixed reggae with North African music in his famous Orchestre National de Barbès. University of Gnawa is his next project. Sahmaoui is now experimenting with the combination of North African and Senegalese rhythms with the Gnawa trance. With his band, consisting of Senegalese and Moroccan musicians he reaches exciting heights.

  • Gnawa & Irish Music Mixed

    3:39

    Powered by

    Music by Thalweg- Aman

    Gnawa music is a rich repertoire of ancient African Islamic spiritual religious songs and rhythms. Its well preserved heritage combines ritual poetry with traditional music and dancing. The music is performed at 'Lila's', entire communal nights of celebration, dedicated to prayer and healing, guided by the Gnawa Maalem and his group of musicians and dancers. Though many of the influences that formed this music can be traced to sub-Saharan West-Africa, its traditional practice is concentrated in Morocco and the Béchar Province in South-western Algeria.
    The word 'Gnawa', plur. of Gnawi, is taken to be derived from the Hausa-Fulani word Kanawa for the residents of Kano, the capital of the Hausa-Fulani Emirate, which was a close ally of Morocco for centuries, religiously, economically, and in matters of defence. (Opinion of Essaouira Gnawa Maalems, Maalem Sadiq, Abdallah Guinia, and many others). Moroccan language often replaces K with G, which is how the Kanawa, or Hausa people, were called Gnawa in Morocco. The Gnawa's history is closely related to the famous Moroccan royal Black Guard, which became today the Royal Guard of Morocco.
    A short browsing of the Moroccan and Hausa contexts will suffice to show the connections between both cultures, religiously -as both are Malikite Moslems, with many Moroccan spiritual schools active in Hausaland- and artistically, with Gnawa music being the prime example of Hausa-sounding and typical Hausa articulation of music within Morocco, its local language, and traditions.
    Gnawa music is one of the major musical currents in Morocco. Moroccans overwhelmingly love Gnawa music and Gnawas 'Maalems' are highly respected, and enjoy an aura of musical stardom.

    In 2011, Playing For Change joined forces with the United Nations Population Fund and the Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund for UNFPA’s 7 Billion Actions campaign. By the end of that year, the world population reached 7 billion, and this global campaign strove to bring awareness to the opportunities and challenges that the population growth would present. 7 billion people means 7 billion hearts, and music has always been the best way to speak to the hearts of the people. We traveled across the globe, put headphones on musicians, added them to the track, and created “United,” which serves as a tangible example of something positive we can all do together as a human race.

The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World.

  • Marhaba

    3:26

    Gnawa music (Ar. غْناوة or كْناوة) is a rich Moroccan repertoire of ancient African Islamic spiritual religious songs and rhythms. Its well-preserved heritage combines ritual poetry with traditional music and dancing. The music is performed at lila, entire communal nights of celebration dedicated to prayer and healing guided by the Gnawa maalem, or master musician, and their group of musicians and dancers. Though many of the influences that formed this music can be traced to sub-Saharan West-Africa, its traditional practice is concentrated in Morocco . Nowadays, Gnawa music has spread through many other countries in Africa and Europe, such as France.

    The word Gnawa, plural of Gnawi, is taken to be derived from the Hausa-Fulani demonym Kanawa for the residents of Kano, the capital of the Hausa-Fulani Emirate, which was under Morocco influence-Link of allegiance for centuries, religiously, economically, and in matters of defense. (Opinion of Essaouira Gnawa Maalems, Maalem Sadiq, Abdallah Guinia, and many others). The Moroccan language often replaces K with G, which is how the Kanawa, or Hausa people, were called Gnawa in Morocco The history of the Gnawi is closely related to the famous Moroccan royal Black Guard, which became today the Royal Guard of Morocco.

    A short browsing of the Moroccan and Hausa contexts will suffice to show the connections between both cultures, religiously -as both are Malikite Moslems, with many Moroccan spiritual schools active in Hausaland- and artistically, with Gnawa music being the prime example of Hausa-sounding and typical Hausa articulation of music within Morocco its local language, and traditions.

    Gnawa music is one of the major musical currents in Morocco. Moroccans overwhelmingly love Gnawa music and Gnawas 'Maalems' are highly respected, and enjoy an aura of musical stardom.[citation needed]

  • Tinariwen - Sastanàqqàm

    3:23

    Sastanàqqàm from the album 'Elwan,' available now
    Order ELWAN here:
    directed by Jeremiah, assisted by Celidja Pornon / (c) 2017 Wedge / Anti- / Coop / Pias

    “A thousand miles from their homeland in northern Mali, across a vast expanse of desert, the music of Tinariwen has found shelter in the hearts of six young musicians from M’hamid el Ghizlane. They were only boys when the desert rockers first visited their home, back in 2006, but they saw an immediate reflection of their own dreams and aspirations in the music they heard. In the years that followed they learned the Tinariwen songbook note for note, word for word, even though they couldn’t speak a word of Tamashek, the language of the Touareg.

    When Tinariwen returned to M’hamid in 2016 to record a new album, those young disciples from M’hamid had achieved a remarkable mastery of the desert guitar repertoire. The torch had been passed from hand to hand and heart to heart across the great desert. The young musicians from M’hamid were invited to perform Abdallah’s ‘Sastaqanam’, standing in for their older brothers and playing with uncanny fidelity. But first the members of Tinariwen wrapped new turbans around the heads of their young acolytes, marking not only the passage from boyhood to manhood according to ancient desert custom, but also the transmission of their music across the generations, a transmission that is taking place in the hearts of youth from every corner of the great Sahara.”

    SASTANÀQQÀM (I QUESTION YOU)

    Ténéré, can you tell me of anything better
    Than to have your friends and your mount,
    And a brand new goatskin, watertight,
    To find your way by the light
    Of the four bright stars of heaven,
    To know how to find water in
    The unlikeliest of places,
    And enlist the momentum of the wind
    To help you move forward.

    Tell me, Ténéré, how you and I
    Can remain united, with no hate for each other.
    Ténéré, I can now admit that
    I have travelled far through this wide world.
    Ténéré, I give you my oath
    That as long as I’m alive,
    I will always come back to you.

  • Morocco n Roll — Salaban @ Goat Bar

    7:26

    For photos of MOROCCO 'N' ROLL please visit:


    MOROCCO 'N' ROLL perform the traditional Gnawa song Salaban live @ Goat Bar (山羊酒館) in Hengchun (Taiwan) on February 24, 2018.

    Salaban is a spiritual GNAWA song, which calls upon the ghosts of the Gnawa people's ancestors. These spirits are often involed in GNAWA healing rituals.

    The Gnawa people brought with them their own kind of music, which mixes classical Islamic Sufism with pre-Islamic African traditions.'Gnawa musicians' generally refers to people who also practice healing rituals, with apparent ties to pre-Islamic African animism rites. The Gnawas heal diseases by the use of colors, condensed cultural imagery, perfumes and fright.
    Typically, Gnawa music is deeply hypnotic trance music, marked by low-toned, rhythmic sintir melodies, call-and-response singing, hand clapping and cymbals called KRAKEB. Gnawa ceremonies use music and dance to evoke ancestral saints who can drive out evil, cure psychological ills, or remedy scorpion stings. The ceremonies are guided by the Gnawa MAALEM, or master musician, and their group of musicians and dancers.

    MOROCCO 'N' ROLL is an international band based in Kaohsiung (Taiwan) that plays Moroccan GNAWA music.
    The band members hail from four different countries (Morocco, Russia, the USA and Taiwan). They play an ancient Moroccan GNAWA music mixed with western and Chinese music types (Latino, Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, Jazz, etc.)

    DESCRIPTION

    Composed, arranged and performed by Sami Yusuf
    Words by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum
    Mode: Aeolian

    Performed live at the Dubai Opera, musically speaking, this piece is a marriage between East and West. The composition incorporates traditional instruments of the eastern and western parts of the Muslim world underpinned by a Western/European modal system. This piece showcases the superb virtuosity of the musicians for it stretches the boundaries of what can be played on such instruments. The subject is the Supreme Reality (known in the Islamic tradition as ALLAH), which according to the Islamic tradition has ninety-nine beautiful Names. Some are ’Jamālī’ (feminine/beautiful) and some as ‘Jalālī’ (masculine/majestic). Sami Yusuf’s composition strikes a balance between the two as do the profound lyrics.

    For this special performance, an open call went out to singers in the UAE to audition for the choir. A panel of judges helped choose the winners who embarked on rigorous training before their captivating live performance.

    Thumri is a sensuous ‘light classical’ style, originating in Uttar Pradesh. The word is derived from the Hindi ‘thumakna’, meaning ‘to walk with dancing steps so as to make the ankle-bells tinkle’, and the genre remains closely connected with dance and drama. Ragas are treated more flexibly, and songs are often devotional, romantic, or even erotic in nature. Lyrics have a central role, often being based on folk tales or classical poetry, and commonly depicting the separation of lovers, or myths of Lord Krishna.

    Nina Burmi sings in the Kirana gharana style, tackling khayal, thumri, bhajan, and other forms. Currently living in the UK, she trained under the esteemed husband-wife pairing of Dilshad Khan and Parveen Sultana, and combines the latter’s wide vocal range with a more sparsely ornamented approach. In this song she is joined by top accompanists, with lyrics describing the tension and sorrow of a lover who is separated from Lord Krishna.
