Nuggets from the Ghiwane Generation / Issue # 1

With this post I would like to inaugurate an appointment, which in the intentions would like to be periodic and regular, to present some musical gems belonging to what is called Ghiwane Generation; that group of bands which, inspired by the well-known precursors (Nass el Ghiwane, Jil Jilala and Lemchaheb, in short the sacred trimurti), have contributed to radically renew the Moroccan music scene of the 70s. Many of them have made only a handful of 7 "and very little is known about their history, but fortunately the music tracks remain to testify to their precious contribution.

I would like to propose here some of these real pearls. Some are my own recordings while others have been kindly given to me by friends. The quality is not always excellent (or good) but the spirit is absolutely alive and powerful.

Happy listening to everyone.

Con questo post vorrei inaugurare un appuntamento, che nelle intenzioni vorrebbe essere periodico e regolare, per presentare alcune gemme musicali appartenenti a quella che viene chiamata Ghiwane Generation ; quel gruppo di bands le quali, ispirandosi ai conosciutissimi precursori ( Nass el Ghiwane, Jil Jilala e Lemchaheb, insomma la sacra trimurti), hanno contribuito a rinnovare radicalmente la scena musicale marocchina degli anni 70. Molte di esse hanno realizzato solo una manciata di 7" e circa la loro storia si sa davvero poco , ma fortunatamente rimangono le tracce musicali a testimoniare il loro prezioso contributo.

Vorrei proporre qui alcune di queste vere e proprie perle. Alcune sono registrazioni in mio possesso mentre altre mi sono gentilmente state donate da amici . Non sempre la qualità è ottima ( o buona) ma lo spirito è assolutamente vivo e potente .

Buon ascolto a tutti.
