THE GNAWA

These Black healer musicians of Morocco called Gnawa were brought there hundreds of years ago from Sub-Sahara Africa as slaves and also used as soldiers. They are master musicians who believe that everyone has a color and a note to which he or she vibrates. Each individual responds to his or her choosen color and note as the healer musicians play the guembre (a kind of three strings acoustic bass). The qraqeb, which resemble castanets, are used to heighten the effect of the guembri. In public, the drum, called Tabal, a large round instrument, is added for effect. It is worthwile to note that the Gnawa rhythms can be heard in other forms of modern music, most typically in the blues, jazz,calypso, latin and brazilian music...


Po-Djama

Po-Djama manages to create a most interesting and delicate musical patchwork. It delves into folds of jazz, and loiters around, but ever so gently, into the works of songwriters. It manipulates two or three roch chords, or even borrows some or other oriental theme. It is, in short, the precision work of the finest goldsmith, requiring an uncanny ability to weld together the most unexpected musical materials.
