Notes

Shot on location in Marrakech April 2002.

From the back cover:
Filmed in Marrakech's legendary "Jemaa El Fna", the central square of the final outpost before venturing into the great beyond of the western Sahara desert, this film is one of the most vivid documents ever presented capturing the raw folk stylings of Moroccan music. Shot at night, the performers manifest their passions right before your eyes, some drifting into extreme characters, others floating in dark, flowering breeze.

Album

Morocco is a land of ingratiating variety and intense contrast. The cosmopolitan Atlantic coast fuses with the Berber heritage of the northern Rif and Atlas mountain ranges as the ancient Saharan trade routes wind their way from the south into the city of Marrakech, where all points collide, creating a vibrant mixture of the traditional, the exotic and the supernatural. For centuries, the Jemaa El Fna Rendezvous of the Dead has remained the stage for one of the most spectacular social forums on the planet. By day, this central square in the city of Marrakesh, one of Morocco's great imperial cities, fosters a kaleidoscope of entertainment for its local inhabitants storytellers, acrobats, magicians and snake charmers all create intriguing displays of bewitching spectacle. Recorded by Hisham Mayet in 2005, a few of these performances were featured in his film Musical Brotherhoods from the Trans-Saharan Highway. This collection also contains tracks not present in the film for a more potent snapshot of the ecstatic Jemaa El Fna. Filmmaker Hisham Mayet, who has done a series of these on the sublime frequencies label creates a diffused world where time and space are interwoven inside this magical square in Marrakech. it feels like a lost in time scene that could and probably has been active for hundereds of years. is a place you should visit for a complete sense of. the scope of this amazing catalog.
