Record Store Day Special Release 1000 vinyl LPs Master Musicians of Joujouka Into the Ahl Srif

The first record of new material available on vinyl since 1978. Focusing on the trance-inducing rhaita music of the fertility rites of Boujeloud, this eschews the highly edited, special effects approach of Brian Jones Presents The Pipes Of Pan At Joujouka in favor of a raw, untampered transmission. This LP takes a closer look than ever before at the most cacophonous, droning, & deeply psychedelic side of their music. Available 18 April 2015
