ABD0U EL 0M4RI - NU1TS D' ÉTÉ (1976)
Moroccan keyboard Chaabi music, a kind of modern pop/traditional folk hybrid that El Omari takes to intoxicating heights. A distinct sound among the other veins of electronic experimentation within the continent around the same time. Organ, synth, tape loops and drum machines underscore this spaced-out incarnation of Casablanca market music.
