Gnawa Abdul

Abdul L'African

Founded on old-world musical traditions. Gnawa music is ancient hypnotic trance music that dates back to pre-Islamic Africa. The musical instruments used in Gnawa are drums, clappers, and the wonderful Sentir (a colorful bass instrument with strings made of goat gut & covered in camel skin). The sentir puts out a deep percussive sound as the player plays the strings and hits the top of the drum-like body.

Gnawa ceremonies use music & dance to invite healing ancestor spirits sessions that last long into the night. Gnawa Abdul is a fabulous mix of color and musical texture.
