BOULILA & FRIENDS

The Boulila project is a quartet that plays Gnawa fusion music from Morocco; inspired by the great gwana masters like Mustapha Bakbou and Hmida Boussou. 

 

A vibrant saxophone that jazzes up the dry and bewitching strings of the guembri; an atmosphere that oscillates, in a complex intermingling of rhythms, between Gnawa mysticism and the exaltation of improvisation: one can well imagine the vibe of the winner of the 14th edition of the Syli d’Or de la musique du monde 2021 animating, at dusk, the typical alleys of the medinas of Marrakech. “The young sextet Boulila serves up a fusion of gnawa music, jazz and funk that will make you dream of the outdoor stages of the big festivals, where the solid band is sure to shine” (Le Devoir, 2021).

 

Boulila, winner of the Syli d’Or in 2021, will take you on a journey through African sounds in a mystical atmosphere.  Discover the mystical sound of the guembri and the trance-like rhythms of the rattlesnakes!
