Nass El Ghiwane- Le Sens du Mot (1983) ناس الغيوان

Nass El Ghiwane are superstars of Morroccan popular folk. Great cover, no? This one deserves a hi-res follow-up when I can swing it. The inner gatefold of Le Sens du Mot contains a newsphoto collage detailing Lebanon's 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre. This is cogent, deadly serious content. The Album's title translates as "The Meaning of the Word". Thanks to Richard for the translation/clarification. 320 Vinyl rip by yours truly.

"Turkey is often referred to as the meeting point between East and West, a statement verified by this selection of choice Turkish grooves. The western rock, psych, funk and jazz influences that began to be incorporated into traditional Turkish sounds during the late 60s and 70s can be heard here, as the Anadolu pop sound of Turkeyma balanced these new elements with the complex sounds and rhythms developed over many years. All tracks are referenced from their original 7 inch releases, painstakingly tracked down from various sources in and around Istanbul. The marriage of these styles is original, captivating and bound to freak you out. 40-page booklet includes original sleeve artwork & liner notes."
