Jazz and Morocco: Jon Balke & Amina Alaoui (track of the week)

I haven’t been blogging on account of all the papering I had to do, but came across something worth posting.

Fusion has been always questionable for me, because the product never ends up being true to either musical tradition and the explicitly political baggage it brings with it. Feel free to reconcile east and west, but most of the time you should just leave the music out of it.

This is a rare occasion where it works. Moroccan vocalist Amina Alaoui’s  voice and the percussion create this momentum and build up. Just listen to it.
