Joujouka and Brian Jones Festival

July 4, 2008

On July 29th, 2008, will be the anniversary of the recording of the wonderful (and controversial) album Brian Jones Presents The Pipes of Pan at Joujouka.
To commemorate the event, there’s going to be a festival in Joujouka, Morocco:

To mark the 40th anniversary of this historic recording, the Master Musicians of Joujouka are staging a celebratory festival on 29th July 2008. The musicians will perform the Sufi healing music of Joujouka. There will be a a visit to the 8th century sanctuary of Joujouka’s patron saint Sidi Ahmed Schiech. It will also be possible to visit the cave of Boujeloud, Magara, which is a short trek outside the village.

The evening and night will be devoted to the healing trance music of Joujouka. After dinner, the night will be filled with a full performance of the Boujeloud Rite, which is likened to the ancient Rites of Pan.

Joujouka is a farming community with strong Sufi traditions, located in the Ahl Srif Mountains some 80 km south of Chefchaouen and 20km from Ksar El Kebir. It is a halal village; therefore, both the presence and consumption of alcohol is strictly forbidden.

Anybody got €250 they could spot me?

On Friday, July 4th, The Outside World (12AM-3AM) will feature music from this and other Master Musicians of Joujouka albums and other surprises.
So tune in this Friday to KBOO, 90.7FM in Portland OR and kboo.fm/listen for the rest of the world and 12AM Pacific time and join the fun, fire up your Dream Machine, etc.

  1. Hi there.
    I don’t really want to be involved in the present conflict. I enjoy the music of both factions. And I thought this event warrants my reader’s attention, as does the events by the touring faction. Many of my friends are going the the Vancouver Folk Festival specifically to see the Musicians and I’m sure it will also be enjoyed by all.
    I find this conflict sad and I wish there were some resolution to it.
