Gabacho Maroconnection Short Info

"We have heard of them for quite some time ... one of the best echoes of the Orchestre National de Barbès. " El Mundo - 2014

Gabacho Maroconnection has recently made its name on stage all across Spain, France and Italy with a savvy blend of colourful rhythms and sounds, and tens of concert dates (2014). People would say this is a 'blast'. And it is only the beginning, as demonstrated by their participation in the Battle of the Bands - World Music Network (check the link hereby).

The musicians have a variety of horizons (Spain, France, Morocco), preach a multiculrul philosophy, and play a fusion of gnawa, afrobeat, jazz, flamenco, traditional Moroccan and Berber music that easily catches the imagination. For sure, all these guys have one thing in common: an undiminished joy of playing and sticking together.

Bissara (Oued, 2014), their first album has got to the attention of the main Spanish media(El Mundo, El Pais, uta 66, Radio 3). It is a small piece of art that brings the listener through a mystical journey, from the ancient folk pieces of the Berber mountain communities, to the Arab-Andalusian music of the cities, to the roots-fusion that you'll hear blaring from taxi radios and café ghetto blasters.
