Mohammed El Asri - Marrakech Chaabi
I would first like to thank Joachim for donating this amazing cassette.
This is more wonderful, vintage Moroccan chaâbi - party music for weddings and festivals performed by Mohammed El Asri's Orchestra. The music on this old tape is even better than the last El Asri tape I posted so if you enjoyed that one, I'm sure you will love this one. This is again a live recording, the audience is enthusiastic and the music is high energy from start to finish, with frantic percussion, beautiful vocals and some amazing guitar/violin/keyboard interplay.
I have joined the two sides so what you get is 45 minutes of uninterrupted pleasure.
Treat yo' self!
