B’NET HOUARIYAT AHORA

Groupe

Tonight, in Washington D.C., B’net Houariyat will give a free 6pm performance as part of the Arabesque: Arts of the Arab World festival.

The ‘Daughters of Houariyat’ sing and play drums. Voices carry the melody as a tough percussion workout keeps things moving. The experience is autotune-free, rootsy & great. Ethnomusicological writeup here. Albums here.

These songs come from their 1993 ‘Love Poems of the Women of South Morocco’ album.
