  • May 1, 2019 through May 12, 2019
  • Various venues throughout Europe
The Master Musicians of Jajouka are an all-male group from Jajouka, a small village in the foothills of the Rif Mountains about a hundred kilometers from the major Moroccan port city of Tangier. As residents of the small village of Jajouka in the Djebala hills of Northern Morocco, the Attar family preserves one of the oldest-known musical traditions of the planet. Recognized for their music by the Moroccan Royal family for centuries, by jazz masters, rock icons, respected writers and elite artists from all corners of the globe, it's not the influence upon Western culture that sets the Jajouka masters apart. It's the highly complex rhythms and melodies they begin learning as children from their fathers, which if practiced for a lifetime, allows them to become true malimin or masters. These skills and secrets of the Master Musicians of Jajouka have been passed through generations and have endured through centuries of struggle.
