Rue de la Gaite 70s


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. “
