One of the most musically inspiring groups still left on the planet.
The original Rock & Roll band, that leaves you wanting more.
The primordial sounds of a 4000 year old rock & roll band.
…Bachir Attar… is, without any doubt, the sole rightful inheritor of the mantle of Leader of the Master Musicians of Jajouka, and his band of musicians, who are the only rightful ‘Master Musicians.’
The music is human music, music that preserves life.
This exuberant music will gradually reveal a timeless savvy.
The music is an evocation of sustained ecstasy. It is chaotic, cacophonous, sometimes at war with itself. And it is utterly intoxicating.
I didn't go to Jajouka to find meaning. I went to Jajouka to have a musical experience, which I had.
If I could live 1,000 lives, each one would be as Jajouka.
The ancient music of Jajouka is as profound and spiraling as DNA. This is the raw genetic material of all sacred music.
The gods will surely dig these grooves, as well as the promise implicit in Bachir Attar's strong loving wail.
