VariousKassidat – Raw 45s From Morocco ... LP
Dust To Digital, 1960s. New Copy .... $16.99
Pretty amazing music from Morocco – sounds that are definitely as raw as promised in the title, but which also go way past what you might expect as music from 45s! First off, the tunes are much longer than usual for a 7" single – as most numbers are well over 5 minutes in length, and build beautifully through elliptical rhythms that fold back upon themselves and create these really compelling grooves – often with the same sort of hypnotic feel that you'd get from more traditional Moroccan modes. Also, the work is much earthier than you'd expect from 45s recorded in the 60s – almost ethnographic in nature, as percussion, regional instrumentation, and voices are presented without any sense of studio work at all. Dust To Digital really step into a whole new world with this one – working with Moroccan collector David Murray, who also provides a lot of notes and images. Titles include "Ha Howa Ha Howa" by Benasser Oukhoya & Cheikha Hadda Ouakki, "Makh Makh" by Jimimi Lekbir & Fatma Anounya, "Kassidat El Hakka" by Abellah El Magana, "Zine Mlih" by Mohamed Bergam, and "Sidi M'Bark" by Cheikh Mohamed Riffi.
