Haj Omar Wahrouche (REPOST)
Apologies to anyone who downloaded this from the earlier post, I had forgotten to boost the volume on the files and so the whole thing sounded very quiet. This should be a massive improvement.
Haj Omar Wahrouche was one of a wave of more traditional Berber songwriters popular before the likes of Nass El Ghiwane and Izenzaren started to blend the music with western instruments and more politicised lyrics. The chap I bought this tape from told me his father was a fan of this man and his music. This is some beautiful stuff I'm sure you'll agree.
Here is some footage of the rabab playing man in shades:
