Awesome Tapes from Morocco

Unknown Moroccan Cassette

Someone over at I Hate Music was nice enough to rip a handful of Moroccan cassettes for us, most of which don't have tons of information. This one in particular is very good, track 12 being my favorite. The "HIGH QUALITY" label on the tape is referring to the music, not the recording but we are fans of shit-fi over here sometimes.

The Others: (Rapidshare Links)

Sawt el Manara

Nass el Ghiwane - Vol 3 and Untitled (2 tapes)
Unknown (Brown Tape)
Nassiriphone ?
Unknown (Pink Tape)

I definitely prefer to have information on these, so if anyone could translate some of the information on these I would owe them for life (the cover pictures are tagged with the mp3s). It's nice to know who I'm listening to, but these are really nice.

Hi Dave, DJ UMB here :-)

The Brown one is by ARCHACH.

A roots fusion Berber group of the 70's who followed in the footsteps of Izanzaren, Oudaden & Inrzaf.

Pick up some Inzanzaren from here:

Some Oudaden from here:

Having some trouble identifying some of the others but the silver one "could" be Bnet El Ghiwane but not certain.
