El Hal/The Feeling on Strut

Hi Res Electric Jalaba 2020 1 C Alexis Maryon
Electric Jalaba El Hal.The Feeling Cover

This album from the London-based ensemble featuring the Keen brothers, percussionist Dave De Rose led by Moroccan Simo Lagnawi, offers up a healthy dose of Gnawa meets dub and motoric beats. The groove is exploratory while remaining embedded in tradition. Ancient ceremonial music is given a makeover with driving synth basslines and woozy electronics. A Top of the World in the April 2021 issue (#166).
