This sunny union of traditional North African Gnawa music and modern club sounds results in a fascinating debut, cross-cultural friction which is electric and otherworldly.

GNAWA ELECTRIC LAUNE’ is the magical collaboration between Moroccan Gnawa-master (ma lem) Rabii Harnoune and Frankfurt electronic producer V.B.K hl. Recorded at Achim Sauer’s 7V-Studio, collectively Rabii Harnoune & V.B. K hl have produced an LP which represents entirely new territory, building a bridge from old to new, from Africa to Europe, and from to person to person. “Gnawa music was exclusively played by families whose parents came from Sub-Saharan or Central African tribes to Morocco in colonial times” Rabii explains, “it was rare to be able to listen to Gnawa music on radio, so I started to collect rare live recordings”.
