Next week on the show - A visit with Youssou N'Dour!

Brahim Fribgane

Brahim Fribgane is a talented Moroccan-born oud player and percussionist whose repertoire ranges from Berber folk songs to sub-Saharan influenced gnawa music to classical styles of the Middle East and North Africa.

His collaborations reflect an even broader range of styles - he's recorded with Hassan Hakmoun, Sussan Deyhim, Adam Rudolph's Moving Pictures, South African jazz player Pops Mohammed, DJ Logic, and even Morphine. He's also a core member of the hyper-collaborative Boston-based electro ensemble Club D'Elf. He's working on his first solo album and gives us a taste with a little solo live performance.

Brahim Fribgane was chosen as one of just a handful of local artists to be featured among the global luminaries at the Muslim Voices Festival of performing arts and cultural exchange at BAM (the Brooklyn Academy of Music) and the Asia Society from June 5-14: He's playing a free show (along with zerobridge) on Friday June 12 at the BAM Cafe.
