"Hadawa Chant"

(Recorded at the Tuesday Market at Ait Ourir, 6/17/97)

We were fortunate enough to have a rare encounter with the Hadawa Brotherhood, a Moroccan sect of devout sufis. They are nomadic, travelling from market to market playing for food and tips. Each year the Hadawa sufis migrate to Saint Sidi Hadi in North Morocco for a Hadawa Brotherhood festival.
