“Jajouka has the healing power of love. They have a quality that allows everyone to participate equally improving the quality of people's lives through music. I think creativity is religion”. - Ornette Coleman

"The music of Jajouka is trance music, ecstatic music, a musical narcotic.  From its source -- a particular village in the southern Rif mountains of Morocco -- this magical music has migrated around the world, moving like clouds, like water, like smoke -- flowing through the collective consciousness of its appreciators.  These “remixed” recordings are a natural transformation -- welcome extensions from the branches of the tree.  This is a living music and whenever I listen to its hallucinogenic properties, I too tend to believe that if the Master Musicians of Jajouka were to ever stop the flow of their magic the earth might well stop rotating on its axis, might cease to revolve around the sun…" - Jim Jarmusch

The LP is a limited edition series presented by Amulet Records

All net proceeds to benefit and sustain the ancient Jajouka tradition and build a music school in the village.
