The Issafen Project

The Issafen Project explores the reinvention of Berber musical traditions in dialogue with digital media. Imanaren, a contemporary group from Moroccan Souss, will collaborate with New York-based Nettle in the Berber group’s home village, exploring the frictions and concords between musical languages: acoustic, electronic, contemporary and traditional. Video documentation of the process and the media ethnoscapes, which inform musical creation in Berber Morocco today, will document this collaborative effort.
