atallahmemnon this is a great album and there are some great live videos! My favorite track is Gnawa Beat because it feels like a great intro to the genre and the band. Favorite track: Gnawa Beat.

Levrikon Amazing swingin' '60s music from Morocco by way of France. Absolutely the soundtrack to the best spy flick to never exist. Favorite track: Yemma.

Faisal Jewell Gnawa Beat is the Best Song on the Album. When I listen to it, I imagine that I'm drinking a Cup of Moroccan Tea while the Vinyl version of the Album is playing. Favorite track: Gnawa Beat.

about

Moroccan-French power quartet, Bab L’ Bluz, reclaim the blues for North Africa. Fronted by an African-Moroccan woman in a traditionally male role, Bab L’ Bluz are devoted to a revolution in attitude which dovetails with Morocco’s ‘nayda’ youth movement – a new wave of artists and musicians taking their cues from local heritage, singing words of freedom in the Moroccan-Arabic dialect of darija.
