Moroccan Sufi praise music combines with Afro-funk and blues in a meeting of healing and celebration. Gnawa music has a well-preserved heritage of ritual poetry with traditional music and dancing. Performed at Lilas, entire communal nights of healing and celebration, this West African influenced music is guided by a master musician (maalem) playing a 3 stringed bass-lute or guembri (Omar Afif). Accompanied by Djembe/Endongo (Andy Cooke), Guitar (Ram Nandana), Saxophone (Steve Kettley), Cajon/castanets/dance (Susi Alvorez, Beti Mencal). An invitation to move your body and soul — a rare cultural experience in the setting of the wonderfully adorned Nomad's Tent. Tickets £10 (£8 concessions) available from Citizen Ticket https://citizenticket.co.uk/event/moroccan-healing-rhythms-and-song/
