Rue De La Gaite 70s

Morocco - Indian - Jazz

Ariel Kalma: "I was always curious. I learned how to record. I travelled to many countries and met gifted musicians playing a variety of instruments. After learning how to ‘go inside’, I heard strange sound effects and silences in my head… that meant lots of recordings! I kept copies in various formats and digitalised it all."

"This album was recorded at Rue de la Gaite, between 1976-1979 in Paris where I lived. At that time, Brahim el Belkani from Marrakesh camped in my living room/recording studio and often played music Morrocan G’nawa style mixed with Indian style and jazzy improvisations. Loy Ehrlich was one of the participating musicians, and we recorded several sessions with other visiting friends I had met while traveling."
