Salamate Gnawa (WORLD MUSIC)
Salamate Gnawa is an emerging group based in Montreal, led by Maâlem Rachid Salamate, that plays music originating in Maghreb and flourishing in Morocco by the sea of Essaouira. The main inspiration source of the group is the Gnawa culture that unleashes an intoxicating, spiritual and transcendent music, which is harmoniously mixed with diverse rhythms, as Blues, Rock, Jazz, Flamenco, Zouk etc. With a large scale of colourful music coming from different horizons, Salamate Gnawa crosses the strength of the Qraqueb, the low notation of the Guembri and the beat of the Tbel drums. During their concerts, you will hear music that is striking, captivating, scoped by trans-rhythms, which will make you lose ground and exalt your senses!
