"I don't know if I have the stamina incredible constant strain of the Festival".
Brian died in July 1969, Suki Poiter died in a tragic car accident with her husband in 1982, Brion Gysin died in July 1986, Mohamed Hamri in 2000 and the last Master still alive who played on the recording is Mallim Ali El Attar who is 102 years old.
In 2008 Master Musicians of Joujouka celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Brian Jones's recording with a festival in their village. It has been running ever since in his honor and in honor of the traditions of the village.
The festival since 2009 has been moved to June to avoid the likely 40 degree temperatures in late July. Booking for 2013 festival is available www.joujouka.net To ensure a place book now.
