Record Store Day Special release Master Musicians of Joujouka LP Into the Ahl Srif Limited to 1000

Record Store Day Special release Master Musicians of Joujouka LP Into the Ahl Srif Limited to 1000 this is  first record of new material available on vinyl since 1978. Focusing on the trance-inducing rhaita music of the fertility rites of Boujeloud, this eschews the highly edited, special effects approach of Brian Jones Presents The Pipes Of Pan At Joujouka in favor of a raw, untampered transmission. This LP takes a closer look than ever before at the most cacophonous, droning, & deeply psychedelic side of their music.
