The primordial sounds of a 4000 year old rock n roll band. Bachir Attar is the rightful leader of the Master Musicians of Jajouka. WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS, BEAT WRITER
Live Volume 1 is the first Jajouka release in 8 years & marks the triumphant return of the legendary Master Musicians of Jajouka, led since 1982 by Bachir Attar. Recorded in Lisbon on the final night of a week long tribute to Paul Bowles, Live Volume 1 is the debut release on Jajouka Records, owned and operated by Bachir Attar and the Master Musicians of Jajouka. The album contains several new and never before released tracks, capturing the group at the height of their powers.
Jajouka are currently booking dates, and will be touring North America in February of 2009 in support of the upcoming documentary, The Hand of Fatima. Directed by Augusta Palmer, the film documents her travels to Morocco to investigate her father's (esteemed rock critic Robert Palmer) relationship with The Master Musicians of Jajouka.
