‘El Gamra’ is taken from Bab L’ Bluz’s debut album Nayda!, which is out now on Real World Records. The upbeat, darija-sung ‘El Gamra’ praises the Moon and her restorative powers, inviting all to party under a night sky charged by trancing guembri and rocking chaabi, by ecstatic harmonies and handclaps that come fast then faster still. “Gnawa music is healing music,” says Yousra, “You know this the moment you hear it.” Video created by Alden Volney. Supported by the AFAC (Arab Fund for Arts and Culture). ** WARNING – this video contains flashing images which may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. **
