CHF 29.90



A timely return to Gania’s deeply spiritual music,
with its specific mission to heal, and fight evil.
‘After the dizzying intensity of the opening song, Aicha offers more relaxed interpretations
of the Gnawa ritual repertoire than Colours Of The Night, and a deeper, gentler sound.
The album shines a light on Mahmoud’s virtuoso guimbri playing
and mastery of Gnawa songcraft. It stands out amongst his many releases.’
Recorded in his home town of Essaouira, with a small group of intimates;
originally released in Morocco as a cassette in the late 1990s.


Eine zeitgemäße Rückkehr zu Ganias tief spiritueller Musik,
mit ihrer besonderen Mission zu heilen und das Böse zu bekämpfen.
Nach der schwindelerregenden Intensität des Eröffnungsliedes bietet Aicha entspanntere Interpretationen
des rituellen Gnawa-Repertoires als Colours Of The Night, und einen tieferen, sanfteren Klang.
Das Album wirft ein Licht auf Mahmouds virtuoses Guimbri-Spiel
und seine Beherrschung der Gnawa-Gesangskunst. Es sticht unter seinen vielen Veröffentlichungen hervor.
Aufgenommen in seiner Heimatstadt Essaouira, mit einer kleinen Gruppe von Vertrauten;
ursprünglich Ende der 1990er Jahre in Marokko als Kassette veröffentlicht.

EN: Honest Jon's is an independent record shop based on Portobello Road in Ladbroke Grove, London, operating since 1974. The shop is owned and run by Mark Ainley and Alan Scholefield, who took over from one of the original proprietors, "Honest" Jon Clare. Their record label of the same name is run in conjunction with Damon Albarn, who has been quoted as saying: "I don't really like the term world music. Wherever it comes from, it's all just music, isn't it? Hopefully that's what Honest Jon's is about - to open a few minds to what's out there."[1] The shop sells a multitude of genres of music on vinyl and CD, specializing in jazz, blues, reggae, dance, soul, folk and outernational. It runs a mail-order business from Formed in 2002, the label has released compilation albums such as its London Is The Place For Me series, excavating the music of young Black London, in the years after World War II ("a fascinating archive of material from the 1950s and 60s, chronicling a time when diasporic rhythms were more or less the sole preserve of the small communities responsible for bringing them to these shores");[2] also collections of British folk, Port-of-Spain soca, Afro-Cuban jazz from the Bronx, Jamaican dancehall; and retrospectives of artists including Moondog, Maki Asakawa, Bettye Swann and Cedric "Im" Brooks & The Light of Saba. It has released original music by Candi Staton, Actress, T++, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mark Ernestus, Trembling Bells, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Simone White, Shackleton, Michael Hurley, Terry Hall, and the Moritz Von Oswald Trio. It recorded the chaabi orchestra of Abdel Hadi Halo on location in Algiers; Lobi Traore and Kokanko Sata Doumbia in Bamako; and Tony Allen in Lagos. In 2008, Honest Jon's began a run of compilations of early recordings — mostly drawn from the EMI Archive in Hayes, Hillingdon — stretching back to the start of the twentieth century, covering all corners of the world: from the break-up of the Ottoman Empire more than a hundred years ago, to 1950s Beirut, to late-1920s Baghdad, to 1930s East Africa. wikipedia
