"The Master Musicians of Jajouka hail from a village near Ksarel Kebir in the Ahl Srif mountains of northern Morocco. Jajouka is home to Sufi trance musicians who maintain one of the oldest and most unique musical traditions known on the planet. After many years of dedicated training, the musicians finally become 'Malims' or Masters. They possess baraka, the blessing of Allah, which gives them the power to heal and the endurance required to play some of the most intense and complex music ever written. Led today by Bachir Attar, the Master Musicians of Jajouka are most famous for their connections with the Beat Generation (Burroughs famously dubbed them 'A 4,000 year old rock band') and Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones, who introduced the unique sound of the Master Musicians of Jajouka to much of the Western world. The Source was produced by Brian Jones a month before his death in 1969. The band has subsequently recorded several unforgettable albums on their own and has been featured on albums by Ornette Coleman, the Rolling Stones, Randy Weston, Maceo Parker, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. The music on The Source manifests the musical and ritual force of a local, influential and endless art."
