Boomkat Product Review:
Hive Mind present the hypnotic final recordings by respected Gnawa singer and guimbri player Maalem Mahmoud Gania; one of the most prolific Moroccan recording artists of his generation, who has played with artists as diverse as Pharaoh Sanders, Peter Brotzmann, James Holden and Floating Points. To our untrained ears, the songs follow very similar schematics, with Gania’s bluesy hustle offset by rustling percussion and harmonised vocals in subtle variations that almost recall Raime’s tooth album in their variation-on-a-theme riffs and swingeing percussions.
“Maalem Mahmoud Gania was one of Morocco's most famous Gnawa musicians. Gnawa is a musical and spiritual tradition originating in sub-Saharan Africa that has survived as a subculture within Moroccan society for centuries. The roots of the blues can be heard in its hypnotic rhythms.”
