Apocalypse Across The Sky
Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar is a group led by Bachir Attar, from the village of Jajouka near Ksar-el-Kebir in the Ahl Srif mountains in the southern Rif Mountains of northern Morocco. The music of the ensemble in all its incarnations over the centuries is deeply rooted in Sufi mysticism, paganism and the cult of the goat-god Boujeloud. This pagan root aside, the music performed in several hour long rituals on traditional instruments reveals hypnotic, trance-inducing qualities and is considered to have magical and healing properties. This album is a raw and unpolished document of the ensemble recorded by Bill Laswell during his visit to the village in early 90's. We recommend!
