For all my music geek friends, a genre of music from the Agadir/Essaoueira area, originating from when West African slaves were brought through and traded in Morocco. The slaves picked up West African influences and used the cuffs of their shackles as percussion. Live gnaus/gnawa musicians play in all the restaurants along the coast here, injecting infectious rhythms and senses of humour into the music. Personally, my favourite aspect of this music is the hats with the swirly tassles.
