Hassan Hakmoun is one of the most notable figures in contemporary Moroccan music. Schooled in the traditional sound of the Gnawa people in his native Marrakesh, since moving to the US his music has absorbed elements from a variety of popular styles - from jazz and "world music" to neo-classical contemporary Western music and cerebral pop, resulting in a diverse, award-winning and critically acclaimed body of work. Hassan Hakmoun's 6-piece ensemble includes the sintir plus vocals, guitar, drums, percussion, flute/sax, and karkaba, the metal double castenets of the Gnawa.
