A percussion-heavy mix of gnawa, funk and psychedelic blues
price: Tickets Below

Information:

Wildtune & The Jam Jar are proud to present: Bab L’Bluz (Morocco/France)

Psychedelic Gnawa Blues to wow and warm us in the depths of Winter.

Thursday 27th January
Bab L’Bluz (Real World Records) + support
The Jam Jar, Bristol
7pm-11pm

In the words of Bab L’ Bluz frontwoman Yousra Mansour: “More than anything, we’re a rock band.” Instead of guitar and bass, however, the Moroccan/French quartet wield the guembri, a traditional three-stringed lute, while their musical roots lie in the trance-like grooves of Gnawa music, a centuries-old amalgam of ancestral West African traditions with Arab-Muslim and native Berber influences. Staking their own arresting claim on Africa’s map of reclaimed original blues, their fearlessly freewheeling yet tautly focused debut album, 2020’s Nayda!, draws on a global stylistic melting-pot, from US psychedelia to Indian sitar riffs, down’n’dirty funk to classical Arabic poetry.

“A thrilling manifesto of expansive musical invention” ★★★★★ Songlines
