Legendary Gnawa musician
Hassan Hakmoun will be performing at Chicago’s HotHouse in October. Gnawa
music’s integration of African rhythms and sensibility has been compared to the
Blues and Santeria, but the Moroccan context produced a unique sound.
By age four,
Hassan Hakmoun performed alongside snake charmers and fire-breathers on
Marrakech streets. Out of these origins came an emissary infused with Gnawa
music as well as rock and funk.
