Ariel Kalma: “I was always curious. I learned how to record. I travelled to all kinds of countries and met gifted musicians playing all kinds of instruments. After learning how to ‘go inside’, I heard all strange sound effects and silences in my head… that meant lots of recordings! I kept copies in various formats and digitalised it all. This album was recorded… Rue de la Gaite, between 1976-1979 in Paris where I lived. Brahim el Belkani from Marrakesh camped my living room/recording studio, and often played music Morrocan G’nawa style mixed with Indian style and jazzy improvisations - Loy Ehrlich was one of them and we recorded several sessions with other visiting friends I had met while traveling. “

Calm and dreamy desert blues album by Mdou Moctar, whose music normally can be filed under "Touareg Rock". Everything sung and played by the man himself. As others noted before, quite hypnotizing music! Carsten Pieper
