Bookmark and Share

Wednesday, July 10/ 2002 (Doors 8pm)

***Early show - No opening band***

ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX (http://www.zaphodbeeblebrox.com)
27 York Street, Ottawa, Canada.

Tickets $10 only at the door.

B'NET MARRAKECH, "The women of Marrakech", are of Berber origin, from the villages near Taroudant, southeast of Marrakech. Their repertoire is the vast expanse of ritual and love songs, where the charm of love and desire are sung in Moroccan-Arabic vernacular, to the accompaniment of forceful and hypnotic drumming of percussion instruments which come from all over the Berber territories. To the traditional Berber repertoire they have added chaabi (popular music), gnawa (sufi) and rai (from Algeria). The women simultaneously bang frame drums, metal plates, cymbal tambourines and bells to produce an hypnotic, exotic brew.

Invited to sing at births, weddings, and other ritual events, B'NET MARRAKECH have achieved a public profile and freedom unusual for women in Islamic societies. They accompany themselves on oud (Arab lute), kamanjah (Arab violin), gembri (long-necked lute), darabouka (pottery drum), bandir (frame drum) and taarija (tambourine).

Apart from the amazing strength of their mesmerizing music, B'NET MARRAKECH's super-performing star Malika Mahjoubi, who can be called a Sheriat (the feminine of Sheik), punctuates the music with her energetic dances. Be ready for the sudden somersault or a tray of lighted candles balanced on her head...

B'NET MARRAKECH have travelled the world playing at prestigious festivals and sharing the stage with such notables as CHEB KHALED and RACHID TAHA. Now in Canada to play festivals, B'NET MARRAKECH will give a rare club performance at Zaphod's. This is a not=to-be-missed event!
