Le Festival Nuits d’Afrique présente Moktar Gania & Gnawa Soul

Mon 18 Jul 2022 • 08:00 pm Gnawa / Soul
Théâtre Fairmount - Montréal 32 $
· by Rédaction PAN M 360

« Leur musique conjugue le groove africain des Gnawas avec les mélodies orientalisantes du Maghreb et de la World Music planétaire » (FIP, 2022). Leur nouvel album, Gnawa Soul, incarne l’esprit libre d’Essaouria, cette douce ville de la côte atlantique marocaine animée par les vents du large, où est né le Maâlem Gania, maître héritier des traditions gnaouies, qui a aussi collaboré avec des personnalités telles que Randy Weston et Carlos Santana. Guembri, qraqeb, tama, guitare, clavier, électro, dialoguent avec une ferveur mystique et enivrante, laissant la part belle aux solos et à l’impro, décloisonnant les genres et libérant les âmes.

“Their music combines African Gnawa grooves with orientalizing Maghrebian melodies and other World Music.” (FIP, 2022 [translation]). Their new album, Gnawa Soul, embodies the free spirit of Essaouira, a beautiful port city on Morocco’s Atlantic coast energized by a constant sea breeze, where Maâlem Moktar Gania was born. This heir to Gnawa traditions has since collaborated with the likes of Randy Weston and Carlos Santana. Guembri, qraqeb, tama drum, guitar, keyboard, and electronic instruments converge with a mystical and intoxicating fervour, with ample room for solos and improvisation, transcending genres and letting spirits soar.
