Guidato da Reda Zine, originario di Casablanca, il progetto “Fawda” naviga tra repertorio sacro e profano. Un incontro inedito tra tradizione e innovazione che attinge dalle sonorità della musica Gnawa marocchina, dell’elettronica e del jazz contemporaneo di Sun Ra e John Coltrane. Led by Casablanca-born Reda Zine, the “Fawda” project navigates between a sacred and profane repertoire. An unprecedented encounter between tradition and innovation taps into the sounds of Moroccan Gnawa music, electronic music and Sun Ra and John Coltrane’s contemporary jazz.
