Hassan Hakmoun is one of the most notable figures in contemporary Moroccan music. As a master musician his vision and contributions have enabled a unique fusion and blending of traditions, cultures and genres in a world of ever-expanding global communication and exchange. His musical origins are rooted in the African folk music of the Islamic Gnawa sect, descendants from West African slaves brought to North Africa several hundred years ago. Their music combines complicated West African syncopations with long, sinuous North African melodies. Gnawa musicians often express their religious devotion through their music, using it to enter into spiritual trance states.
