"The function of music is to release us from the tyranny of conscious thought" - Sir Thomas Beecham

Group Doueh’s first ever North American performance

"The now legendary Group Doueh have been playing in and around their native homeland for over 27 years, the band morphing between acoustic and electric modes with members of their family and friends joining the band as the mood requires…… The group’s ancient/modern sound is rooted in the traditional foundations of Sahrawi/Hassania music, but takes it in a direction that is also entirely its own. It shares its roots with the neighbouring styles of Mauritanian music - yet Group Doueh have managed to transcend the limitations of that music with a fiery, independent, and individualistic approach that incorporates a distinctly rock element anomalous in the region. This is a sound that can only come from the land that inspired it: the Sahara desert." - Via Sublime Frequencies
