Live traditional Moroccan music, Gnawa, performed by Grammy-nominated musician Samir LanGus and his band. He was born and raised in the city of Agadir Morocco and began learning Gnawa, a traditional, spiritual trance music when he was 8 years old from the Gnawa masters of Morocco. This exciting new artist fuses a centuries old North African tradition with the pulse and attitude of New York City now. He would like to improvise with Berber, Indian, Saharan, and even Flamenco music playing a mix that keeps the Gnawa tradition with an added flavor. Samir wants to “take Gnawa music to the next level and share it with the world. Get your tickets now, below by using the PayPal link!
