Gabacho Maroc is one of the most exciting bands in world fusion at the moment. Ever since they were established in 2013, reviews of their music and performances have never been short of praise. The music of Gabacho Maroc is a combination of the North-African Gnawa music tradition, Arabic influences, jazz, trance and electronic music with French and Moroccan lyrics with all the different elements of their music blending smoothly together. The members of Gabacho Maroc come from Morocco, Algeria and France. On the stage they are said to be like an ‘unforgettable fire’; in their music the west meets the deserts as a multilayered dialogue of instruments and styles creates something utterly original. Due to this unique fusion style and their live performances the New York State newspaper Daily Gazette rated them as one of the best live acts of 2018.
Their first album BISSARA (Oued, 2014) was nominated in The Best Artist in African Jazz category at the All Africa Music Awards (2015). Their second album Tawassol (‘Connection’ in English) was released in 2018 (1OH10) and almost immediately reached #1 on the Transglobal World Music Chart and #4 on the Global Music Network Chart.
