Jamaaladeen Tacuma joins Gnaoua Et Jazz

Pioneer Works, 159 Pioneer Street, Brooklyn, NY

Looking forward to warming things up in Brooklyn this Sunday March 19th. We need some heat right about now. I am thrilled to be part of Gnaoua et Jazz curated by Will Calhoun, Grammy Award-winning improvisational hard rock drummer of LIVING COLOUR. The festival—featuring two great masters of the Gnaoua tradition, Maâlem Hamid El Kasri and Artistic Director Maâlem Abdesslam Alikane—will celebrate the festival’s long-standing inclusion of pioneering jazz artists and Gnaoua jazz collaborations including Jamaaladeen Tacuma-electric bass guitar and Marc Cary- piano. This is an exciting celebration of the 20th anniversary of Festival Gnaoua et Musiques du Monde that takes place in Essaouira, Morrocco. Do not miss your chance, you might not be able to get to Morocco this year but Brooklyn is just a hop skip and jump away. Let your spirit be transported to warm sandy shores of Morocco.
