Trinosophes is extremely excited to announce a performance by the oldest band in the world, Master Musicians of Jajouka, who hail from the village of Jajouka in the foothills of the Rif mountains of Morocco. Although famously called 4,000-years-old William S. Burroughs (who linked it to the ancient Roman celebration Lupercalia), the ensemble has existed continuously for an estimated 1,300 years, performing a musical tradition unique to their village. This touring version of the band features hereditary band-leader Bachir Attar with a couple key members of the ensemble. This a very rare appearance and one of less than a handful in the US for this tour.
The concert is generously supported by Ron Papandrea, in conjunction with the exhibition "What Is Stroker" and in celebration of Paul Bowles, Mohammed Mrabet, and Irving Stettner.
Advance tickets available online at www.trinosophes.com and at Trinosophes.
