Description

In the remote foothills of Morocco's Middle Atlas mountains lies the fabled city of Fes, an ancient beehive of winding streets and lost alleyways pulsing to a rhythm untouched by the centuries. Once a year, for one unforgettable week, Fes opens its gates to host its acclaimed Festival of World Sacred Music. Under the Moroccan Sky ushers listeners into this intoxicating alchemy of ecstatic music from across the globe.

Ten tracks, capturing the very best of the festival's 1999 and 2000 seasons, include the spectacular rhythms and voices of Egypt and Algeria, heartfelt Sufi songs of West Africa, spiraling Qaderi Dervish music from Kurdistan, Spanish gypsy songs from the Old World, and more.

For anyone yearning to hear sacred world music at its very highest level, Under the Moroccan Sky offers a magic carpet ride to the far reaches of this enchanted and eternal domain.

Featured artists: Aruna Sairam (India); Houria Aichi (Algeria); Ensemble Ibn Arabi (Morocco); Musa Dieng Kala (Senegal); Dufay Collective (United Kingdom); Tekameli (France); Nass El Ghiwane (Morocco); Qaderi Dervishes of Kurdistan.

Really gorgeous authentic spiritual voices from ancient traditions. Contrary to what the other reviewer stated, exceptionally uplifting.
