The story goes that, packed at five in their Chevrolet Camaro, Abdul & The Gang had one day stormed towards Errachidia to seize the honorable beldi rhythms. Brought back to their Kasbatek, the tarijas of the beldi had become one of the gears of this GnawiLictronik Funk which made the lighting of the places flinch. Connected to the mains, the synthesizer unpins its hypnotic melodies, playing its quarter tones like a formidable weapon taken out by surprise from behind the belt when everyone was holding their hands in the air.


"A fruitful, laugh-out-loud explosion that pays pacifist homage to the Chibanis, Mandela and the Arab Spring. - Farra C - L'Humanité


"Abdul & The Gang's groove moves us, reminding us of the great energy of the early days of Gnawa Diffusion" - Frédérique Briad - Marianne


"Chaabi melodies, Gnawa frenzy and funk galore, fused in the same energetic drum: with Abdul, his Arabic-speaking verve and his brassy gang, anything goes, as long as the groove is happy and wild" - Anne Berthod - Télérama
