This is super fucking cool! Thank you for another great post.
Nice! The group is called Tislatin Onzar. Thanks for posting!
@Tim abdellah.
Can you illuminate us on Tislatin Onzar group, I see that is a berber dance , but it would be very valuable to know, Country, Region, Language, Style, in order to perfecting our knowledge, thanks for the collaboration.

Hi NGONI - it's Tachelhit pop music - Berber music from the Souss - southern Morocco. A few trad instruments are heard (the rrbab horesehair fiddle, gnbri lute and awwad flutes).
Thats great! Thank you so much for it :)
Thanks Tim, I suppose that they sing in Amazigh, after feeding the curiosity is easier to concentrate on the music, and to compare it to a later hearing.
Become a bit familiar with the music,to go a little more understanding.
Great to hear you'll be in London. Try to get to south london areas like Brixton or Peckham. Lots of tapes from Africa in the markets!
Just referred to this great website. I am looking forward to the discussions. I love the DJ pieces on YouTube. Check out percussionist Thione Diop in Seattle. He is growing in some unexpeted ways.
Just commenting to say it was great to hear an NPR story on Awesome Tapes from Africa in my car on the way to work today! Keep up the amazing work.
Great reminder to never judge an album by its cover! I thought this was going to be cheesy pop ballads but was pleasantly surprised.

Fantastic stuff
Thanks for the show in Poitiers last night, that was awesome as usual. Good to see you twice in western france. I'm waiting for your next shows over here!
Oh, this tape I have been listening to very much since I bought it in a little shop in Cascades d'Ouzoud in Morocco five years ago. I especially like the footstomping which the shop owner also explained to me was very important in this kind of music.
It's amazing ! Great thanks.
Could you please indicate the year of the tapes and the country. Thanks again.
Awesome, you have some really good suggestions on here :-)
Mad stuff - juju from Morocco :-) This has grown on me as I listened, and put a big smile on my face today! Thank you
This is dope as fuck. Like another poster here, I definitely prejudged this one based on the cover and was stoked that I bothered to give it a chance, because it's nothing like I expected. This is crushing polyrhythmic percussion you can take home to mom.
Just found this album as mp3 on Amazon! And there are 4 more Tislatin Onzar albums there too

ASINs on


Cheers and thank you for this fantaastic cassette!
