Majid Bekkas Gnaoua Blues Band

The Sultan Room at the Turk's Inn, 234 Starr Street, Brooklyn, New York 11237

Majid Bekkas Gnaoua Blues Band October 11th, 2022 - 7pm The Sultan Room

Majid Bekkas, the Moroccan master of guitar, guembri, and oud merges tradition and the future, as he has done with jazz innovators like Archie Shepp and Joachim Kuhn. The result is the most soulful fusion of swirling, entrancing Gnaoua playing and blues-drenched African American styles.

In the 90s he began to experiment with the notes of the lute and the guembri that identify him so much, as well as singing and incorporating other instruments such as the flute and drums. He recorded 20 albums with different line-ups and won multiple awards.

Majid Bekkas is touring to promote his new album: “Joudour”, an open-minded cooperation between the Gnaoua music’s essence and the Blues. Joining Bekkas are Bouhssine Foulane (ribab), Nor Edine Bahha (keys), Oussama Chtouki (bass), and Oussama Mougar (drums). Joined by DJ Soul K.

This is a 21+ event.

Presented by H'Art Prod in partnership with Brooklyn Maqam
