The Gnaoua begin their ceremony at sunset and don’t quit till it returns.

A Life En-Tranced: The Mythic Journey of Morocco’s Gnaoua
Morocco’s Gnawa (or Gnaoua) are a mystical sect that uses music to attain a transcendent state. They are also healers who exist in a world where imagination is fact.
Style: Gnawa
By Derek Beres

A whirling dervish in Morocco

Magical, Mystical Morocco
From the Master Musicians of Jajouka to Hassan Hakmoun, Emil Zrihan to the all-female Berber group B’net Marrakech, the more we hear of Morocco, the more we fall in love with the mysteries of this ancient land.
By Anastasia Tsioulcas

Denied the opportunity to study classical music, she took the initiative to teach herself ghazals.

Riffat Sultana
She comes from a long line of singers, but Pakistan's Riffat Sultana was initially not permitted to sing. Fortunately, she decided to buck tradition.
Style: Ghazal
By Jeff Tamarkin

"I’m definitely inspired by the folkloric styles, but my own music is difficult to classify.”

Marta Topferova
Czech-American singer/songwriter/guitarist Marta Topferova found her way to Latin music. "I’ve always loved the rhythms and styles of Latin America," she says.
Style: Latin
By Tom Pryor

“Jewish culture influenced Latin music; there are certain melodies in salsa that go back to Sephardic songs.”

Hip Hop Hoodios
The Hip Hop Hoodios are not only bi-coastal (LA/NY) and bi-cultural (Latin/Jewish), they’ve become bi-polar with their latest release, Agua Pa’ La Gente. The eclectic soundsmen keep it DIY by featuring an amazing guarantee on the goods: you don’t like the record, you get your money back. For real.
Style: Hip-Hop
By Derek Beres

“My evolution has worked backwards, starting with James Brown and ending with Naples.”

Enzo Avitabile
Italian saxman Enzo Avitabile delves into the strange and venerable bottari tradition of Naples, which uses huge wine casks as drums and metal sickles as percussion. On his quirky new release, Save The World, Avitabile gets the likes of Khaled, Manu Dibango, Hugh Masekela and others to join him in making his big noise.
Style: Italian
By Rob Weisberg
