Product Description

"Kassidat: Raw 45s from Morocco" is a full-length LP that features six extended tracks from the Golden Age of the Moroccan record industry. After Morocco gained its independence in 1956, Moroccan-owned record labels sprouted and flourished in Casablanca. The inexpensive 45 rpm format allowed the record companies to release thousands of songs during the 1960s, creating a snapshot of the raw and hypnotic Berber music that thrived throughout Morocco. Powerful traditional styles were still alive and well at this time and untouched by international pop influences. "Kassidat" looks back at this era and presents it anew for audiences hungry for intense and authentic folk music. "Kassidat: Raw 45s from Morocco" is a full-length 12 inch vinyl LP. The album includes a 6 panel folding insert which features color images and extensive notes. David Murray is the curator of Haji Maji, a blog dedicated to the exploration 78 rpm Asian music, as well as shellachead.com, a blof featuring 78s from around the world. He previously produced Dust-to-Digital's "Luk Thung: Classic & Obscure 78s from the Thai Countryside," as well as the forthcoming "Longing for the Past", a 4 CD set of Southeast Asian 78s. In addition to collecting and researching old records, he is a musician and graphic designer in Oakland, California.

Great fun 8 Jan 2014
By Photorealist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As it says in the description, this is a compilation of 45s from after Moroccan independence in 1956. My knowledge of Arabic language music is hardly extensive, but these recordings sound close to traditional with some western influence. Lots of call and response vocals from male and female singers, stringed instruments and drums. I find it both cheerful and danceable, I haven't really wanted to listen to anything else for the past week.
