Gnawa Diffusion - Roots Revolution

arton52 Gnawa Diffusion is known  for its mix of roots reggae with Gnawa music. Gnawa music is, in turn, a mix of Arabic music with sub-Saharan rhythms. This fusion is so well done that I certainly could try hopelessly to describe it without capturing their real essence. So, make yourself a favor, and listen to them, I wait...

Ya Laymi (2004)

Now that you know how they sound, you may want to know a little more about them. World Music Central has a very nice review of the band. Now listen to the following reggae jewel from their 2004 album Souk System. I could keep putting music from this band, they are great, but I have reached my self-imposed limit of 2 songs per post. See you tomorrow.

Saharagga (1999)
