How are you doing?
|Qaraqeb players in Essaouira.|
This is an announcement for those of you who had by any chance been waiting for that post about Gnawa music that I'd promised to finish a long time ago, or those enthusiastic enough about Morocco and the music of this Middle-Eastern country, known for its richness in musical styles.

It's of no use for me to explain how much the last three months or so been busy, and I can't begin to apologise for this unintentional delay. But, as from now on, the work on the Gnawa post (Title: The Musijins of Morocco, Gnawa Trance Nights And The Daemonical Side of Moroccan Music. - قــــناوة.), will begin and in no time the post's going to get pubbed 'ere insh'Allah.

All I can assure you of is that I'm working on it right now, and it'll really be something worthy of your waiting (or, as I self-coined it above your... 'Gnawaiting'). Prepare to be amazed because the information; the new-found knowledge and the sheer volume of its detailedness will be one of a kind.

Enjoy your days, and until then... you can read about Abderrahmane Paco: one, great guembri-player and Gnawa musician who passed away sadly earlier this week.
With all due respect,
