Over at Mudd Up!, An Eid al-Fitr inspired post of songs from Yemen, Morocco, Algeria, and Spain. Including this recent Moroccan chaabi. Got this last January in Barcelona; the guy burned me a CD-r of tunes sans meta-data… It’s a stormer though! Performed live, crowd cheers included:[audio:http://negrophonic.com/mp3/MoroccanChaabi_unknown.mp3]
Yesterday I made the mistake of walking by the World Trade Center site – the crazies were already out! Already basking in media attention. Anyhow, music remains a gift and refuge: head here for more.
