Concert: AZA with Special Guest Brahim Fribgane

Founded in 2009, AZA is a Santa Cruz based band which unites traditional Tamazight (Berber) music, indigenous to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, with other global influences. Evocative of Saharan-African blues, but with an original style that defies categorization, AZA's stirring performances feature deep, danceable rhythms, intricate string melodies, and soaring, soulful vocals. Tonight's performance features the band's founders, Fattah Abbou and Mohamed Aoualou with special guest, Brahim Fribgane. Fattah Abbou and Mohamed Aoualou are Berbers native to the High Atlas mountain region of Morocco who are recognized as master musicians. Moroccan-born percussionist and oud player, Brahim Fribgane, who moved to Albuquerque in 2014, has played with artists ranging from Peter Gabriel to Pete Seeger, Harry Belafonte, Larry Coryell, Zakir Hussain, and Morphine.
