Lhoucine Amarrakchi - Berber Music from the Souss Valleys
This cassette is another of the wonderful treasures provided by Joachim. It's Berber music complete with banjos, rabab and hectic percussion. Its a high energy affair and I hope you enjoy it.
On the end of each side we are lucky enough to find an incredibly strange instrumental track with rabab and banjo playing over synthesised backing. Each of these tracks cut short leaving me hanging out for more - if anyone knows where to get the complete tracks I'd love to hear from you.
Get it HERE.
Finally, any translations, or info about this artist would be much appreciated.
