Deep TR-808 bass meets pan-Maghreb beats, timeless voices and futurist visions. AMMAR 808 was the sonic mastermind behind the Tunisian sensation Bargou 08. With singers from Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco, songs from the Targ, Gnawa, and Raï histories, and a TR-808 alongside a distorted gumbri, gasba flute and zokra bagpipes, this is an album that reaches out to encompass the entire Maghreb area of North Africa. The deep, rumbling growl of the gumbri, the dry, airy tenderness of the gasba, and the softly slithering zokra give a powerful North African root to the music, a thread that spins back through centuries. And the singers burn with fire and grace and passion. It's the great reinvention of a region's music. It's a call to action. It's the future, right now.

Also available: MAGHREB UNITED (CD).
