Saïd Tichiti von Chalaban [MAROCCO] & Friends
gnawa music aus marokko

Born from a south maroccan Berber mother and a black African father, Saïd Tichiti, has been living in Hungary for almost 15 years where he has founded a band, Chalaban, with local musicians, mixing instruments and influences of central Europe and Afro-Arabic world. In Arabic, Hungarian, English, French, he works with gypsies, armenian and jewish musicians in order to open the Moroccan native music to new horizons.

Chalaban took part in the main World Music events in Eastern and Central Europe, in Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria, Serbia, Poland, Slovakia and Romania: Sziget Festival in Budapest, Cross Culture Festival in Warsaw, Exit Festival in Novi Sad, and the Jewish Summer Festival in Budapest.

The last musical project initiated by Said is the Tariqa band and the album “ Gnaoua with Carpathia touch”. Tariqa’s ecstatic momentum is firmly based on gnawa drumming and guembri bass lines spiced by rippling carpathian cimbalom, violins and flute. Top this all with Saharian desert blues vocals and horn parts full of urgent urban American howling and Klezmerscreams.

Tariqa’s new CD is a musical breakthrough Bartok, Coltrane and the late Ali FarkaToure would all likely relate to.”
