Talking Gigs: Justin Adams & Mohamed Errebbaa

Thursday 10 November 2022 at 7:30 pm

Guitar and Gimbri – Lifting Spirits

A new UK based collaboration between Justin Adams and Moroccan Gnawa master Mohammed Errebbaa.

From Adams’ work with Jah Wobble’s Invaders of the Heart, to collaborations with Robert Plant, Tinariwen, Rachid Taha, and Juldeh Camara, his connection with the trance music of North Africa has always been an integral part of his sound. 

This new project sees him team up with Errebbaa, who began performing with traditional Sufi brotherhoods in Rabat, Morocco at the age of ten, and received the title of Maalem (master of the Gnawa tradition) at the age of 28, after working with many of the great Gnawa players such as Maalem Moktar Gania.

This performance will harness the deep trance power of the Gnawa repertoire as well as drawing from Adams’ back catalogue, and will showcase new material, bringing elements of desert blues and heavy groove to lift the spirits and dance .

As always this event will include a raffle in support of Assist.
