From July to December 1959, Paul Bowles crisscrossed Morocco making recordings of traditional music under the auspices of the Library of Congress. Although the trip occupied less than six months in a long and busy career, it was the culmination of Bowles’s longstanding interest in North African music. The resulting collection remained a musical touchstone for the rest of his life and an important part of his mythology.
More than four hours of newly-remastered audio plus extensive liner notes by scholar Philip Schuyler. Field notes by Paul Bowles and Introduction by Lee Ranaldo.
