U - Cef - "Halalium"
U - Cef
In Morocco everyone`s got a sound up their sleeve...the Berber folk of Ouarzazate in the deep south, the Gnawa brotherhoods descended from West Africans who brought their spirit and music up north to us centruries ago, the Arabic hip-hop rebels in the big baad city Casablanca, the Melhoun poets in the old places like Fez and Meknes and the Andalusian masters from Tetouan and Tangiers. Musically.... that´s a rich motherf***king place....Morocco, I mean! Bits of the jigsaw travelled in my head, my heart and my blood - with me to Paris, New York City and London - melting into the Halalium collective with the jungle, the dub, the hip-hop, the reggae roots and jazz which my brothers and sisters brought to my attention along the way.
