Hassan Erraji and Oriental Craze are playing as part of the 2018 Horwich Music Festival on Sunday May 6th (2pm - 4pm)
They play a diverse repertoire of jazzy, uplifting roots and contemporary dance and easy-listening music of Morocco, the Middle East and beyond.
Hassan Erraji is a Moroccan Master Musician.
Born in the village of Tazart, South of Marrakech, Hassan was introduced to the traditional music of the Atlas mountains from an early age by experiencing the many forms of the Berber music repertoire which is practiced and taught by ear; passed on from generation to generation, from master to disciple.
Oriental Craze blend their repertoire of traditional folk songs with an upbeat modern sensibility, giving groove and funk to these time-honoured styles.
Expect a colourful selection of songs and solos, exciting rhythms and melodies ranging from the hot tunes of Marrakech and the Sahara to the soothing melodies of Arab and Berber music hits.
