about

PODJAMA manages to create a most interesting and delicate musical patchwork. It delves into folds of jazz, and loiters around, but ever so gently, into the works of songwriters. It manipulates two or three rock chords, or even borrows some or other oriental theme. It is, in short, the precision work of the finest goldsmith, requiring an uncanny ability to weld together the most unexpected musical materials.

THE GNAWA: These Black healer musicians of Morocco called Gnawa were brought there hundreds of years ago from Sub-Sahara Africa as slaves and also used as soldiers.They are master musicians who believe that everyone has a color and a note to which he or she vibrates. Each individual responds to his or her choosen color and note as the healer musicians play the guembre (a kind of three strings acoustic bass).
