Description
Born in Morocco but living now in Leeds, Hassan Erraji studied both African folk and Western classical music. His instrumental skills are staggering, ranging from ney (flute) and qanun (Arabic zither) to violin, keyboards, and hand drums. His record company describes him as "part oud-flailing Hendrix, part transmitter of ancient culture," and who are we to disagree?

"An upbeat crossover set that continues Erraji's fascination with fusing different styles while playing an extraordinary range of instruments…. His deep, relaxed voice [is] matched by sturdy riffs and a swirl of overdubbed instrumental work. Backing vocals are provided by his daughter. 'Mounyati' sounds like a violin-backed Arabic country hoe-down, and 'Douka Dance' mixes Arabic embellishments with what could be a sturdy English folk theme…. A virtuoso performer."—The Guardian
