Hassan Erraji

THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 The internationally acclaimed blind veteran multi- instrumentalist and singer from Marrakech and his hot new band of young jazzy Moroccan Rollers bring to life onstage a set of sensational new pieces featured on his long-awaited landmark September 2010 World Village album release Awal Mara. With Kaiser Chiefs’ producer Dave Creffield providing the attitude, the always charismatic Erraji embraces a thoroughly current and very danceable contemporary global sound, whilst these new songs of burning passion memorably re-ignite the ancient and magical fire of stately bass and derbuka-driven Berber rhythms, and move effortlessly across a glamorous mosaic of lush Arabic oud and qanun power-chords and soaring taarab-style strings.
