For several years, Léo Fabre-Cartier, a French oud player, has spent time in Khenifra (Morocco) with Younes Baami, a young virtuoso and disciple of the great Mohamed Rouicha. From this encounter Araw N Fazaz was born, a new face of the Amazigh music of the Middle Atlas.

Accompanied by musicians from Khenifra and featuring songs composed by Younes Baami, Araw N Fazaz give us the opportunity to (re)discover this extraordinary and yet little-known music!
