Mohamed Rouciha Inass Inass

Side 1

Side 2
Inass Inass

Mohamed Rouciha's best album.  Features his hit song, Inass Inass, and contains three more songs of outstanding quality.  Released on the MasterOne label out of Fes, this tape finds Rouicha's outar (African lute; similar to the loutar, but smaller) playing at its fiercest.  Gritty vocals and raw, echo-drenched production.  Middle Atlas Berber chaabi ("popular") music at its finest.

The intro on Track 3 is ridiculously bad ass.  R.I.P. Mohamed Rouicha (born January 1, 1950, died January 17, 2012).
