Editorial Reviews

Product Description

''The music of Jajouka is trance music, ecstatic music, a music narcotic. From its source a particular village in the southern Rif mountains of Morocco this magical music has migrated around the world, moving like clouds, like water, like smoke - flowing through the collective consciousness of its appreciators,'' writes Jim Jarmusch in the liner notes to The Road to Jajouka, a new recording that pays tribute to the legendary Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar. This collection features both new performances and remixes created by western master musicians utilizing original Jajouka recordings. Produced by drummer/producer Billy Martin, the nine tracks feature guest artists including Medeski Martin & Wood, Marc Ribot, Ornette Coleman, John Zorn, Lee Ranaldo, Flea and Mickey Hart among others. All profits from album sales will benefit The Jajouka Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 2013 to foster awareness and preservation of this ancient ceremonial music.

Review

''There may be more challenging, exotic and esoteric CDs out there but I sure haven't found 'em. The Road To Jajouka is cerebral, mysterious and sensual, the most far-flung slice of entertainment to cross my desk in years.'' --Aquarian Weekly

''The Road To Jajouka is one of the most interesting and at times beautiful discs I've listened to this year. Close your eyes, and this music will transport you.'' --McPhersonSentinel.com

''This is literally a timeless music, haunting, intriguing and somewhat foreign to our ears, but one that can elevate the listener as few other experiences can. Try The Road to Jajouka with open mind and ears, and you'll find yourself transported to a place and a culture of which you've never dreamed. Some of you might not come fully back -- and isn't that why you travel to begin with?'' --Ink 19
