SHOWCASING THE GNAWA TRADITION ON NOV. 16

  

Batuki Music Society and the Alliance Francaise present Grooz on Saturday November 16, 2019 at the Alliance Francaise Theatre in Toronto at 9:00 PM. Singer, bass player and guitarist Abdelhak Benmedjebari with his group Grooz, have a knack for electrifying a crowd and bringing them into “an ecstatic trance”. Grooz embodies Algerian grooves that extend the ancestral tradition of Gnawa music by incorporating in it reggae beats, blues and jazzy sounds.

Abdelhak Benmedjebari, chanteur et guitariste de Grooz, est un habitué de la scène. Il accompagnait son père, Maalem Mejbar, et ses oncles, membres de Gaâda Diwan Béchar, deux figures importantes de la culture algérienne. Aujourd’hui, il revisite la tradition gnawa et réinvente la transe à coup de rifs électrisants. Infiltrant le répertoire ancestral avec des sonorités reggae, blues, rock et jazz, Grooz crée un maelström de rythmes hypnotiques et vigoureux, provoquant des mouvements de danse extatique.
