From start to finish, enthral yourself in this Gnawa-club fusion gem that feels equally at home on the dancefloor as it does in its core spiritual home. From the unstoppable grooves, driven by some funky percussive-work, crisp electronics, not to mention his uplifing vocal delivery the track is an explosion of sound colour.
The song titled ‘Traveller’ is lifted off the duo’s debut LP ‘GNAWA ELECTRIC LAUNE’ which lands on 8th May via Tru Thoughts.
Speaking about the track Harnoune explains “The traveller is a character in the culture of Gnawa, who is travelling from tribe to tribe, from village to city, looking for experiences and knowledge, then sharing it by singing about it”.
Recorded at Achim Sauer’s 7V-Studio, the 12-song collection represents entirely fresh territory, building a bridge from old to new, from Africa to Europe, and from to person to person.
We are thrilled to officially premiere the lead track ‘Traveller’, listen below and pre-order the LP here.
