The Master Musicians Of Jajouka son considerados como un grupo musical de culto, dado que varios artistas como Ornette Coleman y los Rolling Stones, han ido a grabar in situ a Jajouka, Marruecos, o bien han hecho referencias a ellos como William Burroughs que les llamó “la banda de rock and roll de cuatro mil años de antigüedad”. Paul Bowles, el escritor y compositor norteamericano vivió junto a The Master Musicians… hasta que fallece. El amigo cercano a Burroughs, el pintor, escritor, poeta sonoro, performista y más conocido por el uso de la técnica cut-up, Brion Gysin (junto a Burroughs), fue de los primeros europeos contemporáneos en ir a grabarlos en los años ’50. Fue Gysin quien invitó a su amigo Brian Jones (de Rolling Stones) a Jajouka y de regreso a Londres, editaron con la técnica cut-up, el álbum “Brian Jones Presents: The Master Musicians of Joujouka” que es considerada la primera grabación de la World Music. Fue también el primer lanzamiento en el sello Rolling Stone Records. Más adelante, otros músicos inspirados por la música de este grupo, sacaron grabaciones como Bill Laswell y Philip Glass.

The Master Musicians son un colectivo de creadores de trance Jbala Sufi que realizan una versión contemporánea de su tradición musical centenaria. La música de esta agrupación llevaba a los peregrinos que viajaban al santuario sagrado de Sidi Hamid Sheich, a un estado de trance que permitía curar los trastornos mentales.

"Dancing Under the Moon” fue producido por el antiguo líder de la banda, Bachir Attar. El grupo conformado al menos por nueve miembros, son conocidos por tocar una nota continua y al mismo tiempo respirar. Sus instrumentos son flautas de madera, guitarras de tres cuerdas y distintos tipos de tambores, así como rhaitas (sonido parecido al de la gaita) que producen una música hipnótica que continua perseverando y cuyos poderes curativos tan bien le podrían hacer a nuestro mundo de hoy.

The Master Musicians Of Jajouka, considered a cult musical group. Since several artists who have gone to Jajouka, Morocco to record on site, such as Ornette Coleman and the Rolling Stones, or have made references to them, such as William Burroughs who called The Master Musicians of Jajouka “the four thousand year-old rock and roll band.” Paul Bowles, the American writer and composer lived with The Master Musicians… until his death. Burroughs's close friend, the painter, writer, sound poet, performer and best known for his use of the cut-up technique, Brion Gysin (along side Burroughs), was one of the first contemporary Europeans to go and record them in the 1950s. It was Gysin who invited his friend Brian Jones (from the Rolling Stones) to Jajouka and then back in London, Jones released the album “Brian Jones Presents: The Master Musicians of Joujouka” with the cut-up technique, which is considered the first recording of the World Music genre. Furthermore it was the first release on the Rolling Stone Records label. Later, other musicians inspired by the music of the band released recordings such as Bill Laswell and Philip Glass, among others artists.

The Master Musicians are a collective of Jbala Sufi trance creators, performing a contemporary take on their centuries-old musical tradition. The music of this group took the pilgrims who traveled to the sacred sanctuary of Sidi Hamid Sheich, to a state of trance that allowed mental disorders to be cured.

This album was produced by the leader of the band, Bachir Attar. The group, made up of at least nine members, are well-known because they are able to blow a continuous note and still breathe. Their instruments are wooden flutes, guitars with three chords, and different types of drums, as well as rhaitas (sound similar to bagpipes) that produce a hypnotic music that continues to persevere and whose healing powers can do so much good to our world today.
