44B: "Hadouk Khail Hadou Alamma" (Music of the Haouz)
1959 November 1; Video
Performers: Maalem Taieb ben Mbarek and Ensemble
Recorded by Paul Bowles
At Marrakech, Morocco
November 1, 1959
"This piece, while resembling completely the other examples of Haouziya music, seems to me to be the most successful recording of the set, partly because of the acoustics, but principally because the performers seemed finally to reach some unnamable state which the music strives to induce in the group-psyche of those performing it."
