'A revelation of the year.'
'Truly inspiring world music that speaks to all generations'
Set up by drummer Vincent Thomas in San Sebastian in 2013, Gabacho Maroc has developed its own flair, using Afrojazz as the stock in a stew that's spiked with ingredients from Moroccan, Arabic and Western music.
Gabacho Maroc’s first album, BISSARA (Label Oued, 2014) earned the band a nomination for the All African Music Awards in 2015. The same year, the single “Moussaoui” rapidly attained 40,000 views on YouTube, and was selected by the UK label “World Music Network” for its Rough Guide CD compilation, The Best Arabic Music You’ve Never Heard.
With a repertoire that is variegated, festive and refined, and with more than 150 concert dates on four continents, Gabacho Maroc has become a much-in-demand headliner
The new album TAWASSOL, featuring some artists like Jean-Philippe Rykiel (France), Pascuala Ilabaca (Chile), and Mixel Ducau (Basque Country) will be released in the beginning of 2018 under the 10H10 label of Cristal Records - France (Sony distribution).
