Mystery singer from Marrakech MP3/Flac
I'm about to move house, a mammoth task as we (my partner and our 3 kidiwinks) have been renting our current home for 12 years now. I'm surrounded by boxes and feeling slightly overwhelmed by the amount of packing left to do. It's times like this that a man could easily start to feel like he has too many records.
What this may mean for Snap, Crackle and Pop is that there may be a lack of posts for the next few weeks while we move and settle into the new place.
Just to keep y'all occupied in my absence though, I am posting this cassette I picked up on my recent Marrakech visit. It was recommended to me by the owner of a music shop located in the back room of an electrical goods shop just off the Djemaa el Fna telling me the singer is from Marrakech. I have no idea what type of music it is, and its fair to say I've never heard anything quite like it. I was disappointed when I first put the tape on and really though it would not be my cup o' tea, but the tempo increases over the course of side one until you're absolutely swept away by the demented energy of it all. It appears to be a live recording and, gosh, it does sound like some party!
As usual, any informtion on the artist and the music would be greatly appreciated.
