Jean-Claude – Mauvais Zimeurs (Mauritius, 1978, Disques Issa)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Mauvais Zimeurs“, a sweet psychedelic Soul Sega track recorded in 1978 by the legendary Mauritian musician Jean-Claude Gaspard, and taken from the second volume of a very obscure compilation intended to promote folk songs from Mauritius and Seychelles islands (Indian Ocean) – Enjoy !

Ousmane – Ya Ghagh-Irifi (Morocco, 1976, Mawel)

Ousmane (“Lightning”) was a band from Morocco, who used to play Amazighe (berber tribe from North Africa) Gnawa music in the 70s.

Really setter for the time, the band was composed of 6 members : Ammuri M’barek, Said Bijaaden, Said Butrufin, Belaid el-Akkaf, Tarik el-Maaroufi and Lyazed Qorfi.

They recorded two singles in 1976, toured all around the country and performed a concert in Paris (France) at the Olympia Concert Hall on the 5 of February 1977 (that was also recorded on vinyl), before splitting in 1978.

Following to that former post, I wanted to share with you for today “Ya Ghagh-Irifi“, a catchy Gnawa Jazz Folk desert blues with very sweet violin parts, taken from the second single of the band, recorded in 1976 – Enjoy !
